Coke_new_years_eve_2Today is New Year’s Eve, which is known as a day to celebrate the incoming year -- and the one we are leaving behind.

I know people who mark the day to both extremes -- and every way in between. They may attend big black-tie parties, go to a restaurant or stay at home.

This 1957 “Sign of Good Taste” magazine ad shows a group staying home with family and friends to ring in the New Year. With popcorn, a fire in the fireplace and bottles of Coke, it sounds like a nice evening!
