New Year's Superstitions and Traditions for Good Luck and Good Fortune!

Links to this post

The New Year is finally here and for some it's time to celebrate while bringing in 2017. There are so many ways that people around the world show their excitement for the new year and along with the celebrate comes traditions.

My family hasn't really practiced too many New Year's traditions other than eating certain food on New Year's Day, fireworks and watching the "ball drop" at midnight. But this year I wanted to see what others around the globe are doing and not only what they do but also why. So other than partying the night away with friends and family and waking up the next day to eat and watch the numerous football games, here are a few interesting traditions that I discovered, most of them are to bring luck and good fortune for the coming year, and I can't argue with that!

3DLIGHTFX ~ The Ultimate Night Light! #StarWars

Links to this post
With all of the Star Wars excitement going on this year and in previous years, the 3D Darth Vader Lightsaber Deco Light is the truly the ultimate night light for adults or kids.


This 3D light looks awesome whether its on or off and it actually appears as if it's coming right out of the wall which is really cool! This isn't your typical night light or light saber either. It's a lot more durable than it looks and is easy to assemble. The lightsaber is battery operated which means no use of electricity and takes 3 AAA batteries. The 3DLIGHTFX is safe because it never gets hot or overheats ~ it stays completely cool to the touch as it uses LED bulbs. To complete the special effects, it includes a cracked wall sticker that gives it the perfect look for any Star Wars fan's room, game room, den or man cave.


If you're not a Star Wars fan (Whaaaatttt???) then 3DLIGHTFX 3D Deco Lights are also available in other themes such as Disney Princess, sports, cars, sports and other comic book super heroes. Each one is amazing and would be a great addition to any room! You can find the 3DLIGHTFX 3D Deco Lights at Target or Target.com.

Unique Personalized Gifts at an Affordable Price! #PhotoGiftTown #HolidayGifts

Links to this post
I have to say that the Christmas holidays are not only my favorite time of the year but also the most stressful time of the year as well. I absolutely love the festive activities and decorations that go on for the month proceeding Christmas so I decorate inside and outside of my home. My joy comes from giving to those I care about and love and so when choosing a gift, I take extra care in my selections. A portion of my stress comes from thinking about what to choose and if the recipient will love it as much as I hope they will.

This year I found the something that my oldest daughter will really love and I love too. I had second thoughts about even giving these gifts to her and just maybe keeping them for myself! Photo Gift Town made the decision super easy. Gifts such as a Wood Photo Board, a Cuddle Bear with T-Shirt and an Oval Pendant, all with the photo of my choice turned out to be exactly what I was looking for and I can't wait to share them with my daughter on Christmas morning!
