2013 Wishes

Tonight, millions of people will watch as a brilliantly lit ball drops in NYC's Times Square.  And as the ball drops, clouds of confetti will be released to float down upon the partying crowd below.  Although I've watched the ball drop dozens of times, I never knew that the confetti is not just ANY confetti!  It literally holds the wishes of thousands (maybe millions) of people.

When we visited New York City, we enjoyed visiting Times Square museum and found  .... the wall of Hopes and Dreams where visitors write their wishes on tiny pieces of confetti.

This was one of my favorites .... probably duplicated a few thousand times!

Of course, we had to write our own New Year's wishes ...

 Sodie took great care to make sure I couldn't see hers ... hmmmm!  

We dropped them in the box ...

and said hello to the 2000 Millennium Ball which is on display in the museum.

Tonight, when the clock strikes midnight ... our little wishes will float down over the streets of NYC and hopefully will come true!

Happy New Year to you!!  May all of your 2013 wishes come true!
