"Start the year with an empty jar and fill it with notes about good things that happen. On New Years Eve, empty it and see what awesome stuff happened that you" - got this idea from Homestead Survival. This could be fun to go over with family and friends too! It could be a fun party!!
On New Years, write letters to each other...and hide them away until next New Years Eve when you can read and see how things have changed.
