    So what if Mr. Patterson gives his consent for the kids to stay up? 5 will get you 10 that they’ll never make it to the midnight hour.;-D

    Of course he’ll say yes. When it comes to his kids, inside, he’s pure marshmallow.

    It’s not like the kids are the ones who need to go to bed early.

    Say yes, they’ll probably fall asleep anyway!

    Here everyone has always stayed up till midnight, because we have those traditional fireworks that start at 0:05
    At 0:30 it finishes and everyone rushes to grab the toothpaste first.

    Please explain: I don’t understand about the toothpaste.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    My kids used to beg to stay up until midnight, and if there was no party planned, we’d say yes – hoping they’d pass out well before the ball descended the post in Times Square. More than once they woke us up to tell us the New Year had come.

    yep, always sleep through it and unless a neighbor pops some fireworks, I never know when it is midnight.

    What do they intend to do til 12? Watch tv? Eat? Don’t give them anything with sugar or they’ll never get to bed!

    My daughter always liked to watch the ball drop. It’s also ten here when it’s midnight in NYC, so it wasn’t too bad.
