Same Procedure as Every Year

Unlike last year, where we had a front row seat to the shenanigans in Cologne, Germany, Goddess and I will be sitting in a quiet house, watching as the next round of 4-6″ of snow falls. No riot police for us this year.

While we lived in Germany, we were introduced to a curious NYE tradition, the annual showing of a TV skit from 1963 called ¬†“Dinner for One“, or more accurately Der 90. Geburtstag. Starting at around dinner time, the skit gets 20 or more showings on various TV channels until¬†midnight.

It’s a fun tradition. Just not one where you should try to keep up with James.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Dinner for One

2016 is already rolling through the Pacific nations and will soon spread across Asia.

In a few short minutes here in Germany, the annual showing of “Dinner for One” will start, with 20+ showings on various TV channels between late morning and midnight.

It’s a fun tradition.

We’ll be exploring a new city, but will also make sure we enjoy this before the day is out.

Happy New Year, everyone!
