I have grown up with the tradition of the New Years Baby. My dad did it as a kid and I think his dad did it too...? Anyway, on New Years Eve, we set a shoe by the door (when we were younger, we would find our biggest shoe, usually a boot, thinking we would get more in it) and the New Years Baby leaves goodies in it...usually a magazine, a candy and drink sometimes a toy. My sister, Julie, and her family stayed the night at our house and were visited also...their shoes has better stuff...okay, I just forgot about it until about 1am last night, and 7-11 was the only thing open.
Since a lot of my Erickson cousins read this, do any of you still have the New Years Baby visit?
