My daughter's tree will have a party hat at the top where the Christmas star usually goes. We were at a store after Christmas looking at New Years hat and horns and etc and a lady and her three children are standing there also looking...she said this is how she and her kids celebrate. When the ball drops, they burst the balloons. My daughter said, oh my gosh, this is my new tradition. When I have kids, this is what we will do for New Years. She is doing her tree getting ready for her boyfriend to fly in from New Jersey. She is so excited about the tree. It's amazing what cool ideas complete strangers will share with you. My future grandchildren are sure to love this idea. Wish I had known about it when our kids were young. I was always in a hurry to get the tree down (the day after Christmas) and the kids never were. Good reason to leave it up.
