New Year’s Eve Playlist

While our little ones have never made it until midnight on New Year’s Eve, we have a wonderful tradition of ringing in the new year (even if it’s watching a much earlier time zone on TV) with friends, music, and celebration. Here are some songs that will get your party started and your family looking forward to 2013.
