JOPLIN, MO.--- We are just a day away from ringing in the New Year, but we can't forget about those New Year's Eve traditions. National traditions include watching the ball drop in New York, eating black eyed peas and cabbage, drinking champagne, watching fireworks, and the most popular tradition-- kissing at midnight. However, the most popular traditions in Joplin are a little closer to home.
"Stay at home, spend time with my family. We eat ham, you know, potatoes and everything like that. Pretty much the basic stuff everyone uses, like a Christmas dinner almost I guess," said
Many of those who say they don't have a tradition for New Year's Eve are planning to make one as their New Year's resolution.
