Material Monday: New Year's Eve traditions

We started the tradition of eating fondue on New Year's Eve a number of years ago after some of my coworkers mentioned that that was something their families did. I picked up the vintage avocado fondue pot at our local thrift store. The sauce always burns because the sterno can is way too close to the bottom of the pot but it cleans up easily.

The white fondue set is for chocolate. We usually dip oranges and raspberries and cookies or pound cake.

Another tradition (which I sometimes carry out on my own) is to watch and cry over 'It's a Wonderful Life' one of the best movies of all time.
