Burning the Old Year!!!
Our dear friends, Birgit, Amelie and Ricci, taught us the local New Years tradition of "Burning the Old Year!" The idea is that you pick something from the old year to leave behind. Birgit and her kiddos build upon this idea and burn something from the old year and write a note to God asking Him to help them strive into the New Year.
We were able to make our dolls representing what we would like to burn and leave in the old year and then write our notes to God asking him to help us strive into the New Year.
Georgia and Reese embraced the experience and have declared it a new Ferry tradition!
We loved hearing each person's reasoning behind their doll. It was a wonderful way to close out the year as a family.
