|New Year's Eve 1958|
I'll take a good book (on my Kindle)...lay in a few snacks...kick back in a comfy mid-century chair. The boys will be snug in their beds by the time the ball drops, but that doesn't guarantee they'll be alseep.
This Saturday Evening Post cover from 1958 has Miss Teen Babysitter enjoying a glass of milk while watching the festivities on black and white TV. Artist Ben Prins captured the home decor and fashions perfectly. I'll definitely be in jeans and sweater; however, I'll be slugging back a Diet Coke and watching the Times Square insanity in living color on HDTV.
Here are a couple of other New Year's Even illustrations from bygone days that I think you'll enjoy.
|Waiter with no one to kiss at midnight by Constantin Alajalov - New Year's Eve 1949|
|Norman Rockwell's waiter in The Morning After, New Year's Eve at the Waldorf Astoria|
I'll probably have this big a mess to clean up...but it will be Legos, alphabet blocks and Weebles!
Have a safe and pleasant New Year's Eve
A Very Happy 2012 to All!
