If you haven't heard about this year's HOTTEST New Year's Eve party in Northern Colorado, where have you been?
We have attendees coming from all over the state! (Windsor, Greeley, Loveland, Fort Collins, Denver, etc...) Our 2012 party (Festivus) made quite an impression.
But we're ready to RING IN the New Year in 2013 and party in style with a Masquerade Ball!
Make your 2014 resolution a first... resolve to celebrate with My Big Day Events in formal attire. You'll thank us on January 1st!
Tickets are 50% sold out as of 12/17/13. Knowing that 75% of New Year's Eve plans are made within the week prior to the event, we are pacing ahead.... which means THIS EVENT WILL SELL OUT!
Contact My Big Day today, to purchase your tickets!
Today (12/10/13) is Colorado Gives Day!
On this ONE day, Coloradans pool extra money to donate to their favorite charities. You can give to these charities anytime of the year, of course... but 12/10 serves as a reminder to those who don't commonly give. It is a big, communal outcry, reminding folks of the good work these non-profits do in our community. No donation is too small. Every little bit makes a big difference.
Colorado Gives Day raised 15.4 million dollars in 2012. Let's help top that record, and give to the charities that serve our communities day in and day out!
As an added bonus, when giving on this day, so charities are receiving matches from local businesses, so your donation can go even farther!

No one quite knows the history of Sloshball. It is played across the country and has a variety of published rules. My Big Day Events first played Sloshball in Denver, CO. It was a thrown together game, an open field, and no set rules. My Big Day did some research and found that Sloshball did exist, but there was no formality behind it. We created our own rules, tournament, etc... and today My Big Day's published rules are those other groups follow when starting their own leagues and teams across the country!
Published rules established by My Big Day Events can be found HERE. These are the most commonly used rules found in America to date.

This gal is the cat's pajamas!
CBS news recently did a storty on Suzanne Heintz, a gal from Denver, CO who shares in my passion for silly Christmas cards.
Suzanne, unmarried, poses with a mannequin husband and daughter for all of her holiday cards.
The cards are silly and imitate the greeting cards we all receive every year, filled with family photos.
What photos do you send as a single gal?
Why not a card with a 'fake' family. It makes people laugh, and stops them from asking, "Are you married yet?" This is my kinda girl!
You can watch the CBS story HERE.

I was doing a bit of research on traditions and superstitions for New Year's Eve and came across this interesting article By Davina Ajani.
I must admit, some of these I've NEVER heard of-- but are good to know for future reference, or at least for conversation making.
Ever wonder why people kiss at midnight on New Years? Or why people scream when the clock strikes twelve? Yes, sometimes it’s because they have consumed a little too much champagne, but did you know it’s also a tradition which has developed over the years due to superstition. Here are some New Years traditions explained, and the history behind them:
1. The Midnight Kiss: The reason you are supposedly supposed to kiss someone at midnight, is because otherwise it is believed that the rest of the year means you will face a year of coldness and lack of affection.
2. Food: Some believe that if you eat black-eyed peas on New Years Day it will attract good luck and fortune. Some also eat ham hocks, collard greens or even cabbage to bring in “luck”. The food to stay away from? Chicken or turkey. It is believed that eating poultry will bring misfortune.
3. New Clothes: It is believed that if you do not wear new clothes on January 1st, you will not be receiving many new garments in the new year. Red clothing is preferred for New Year’s Day since red is considered a happy color, and is sure to attract a brighter future for the wearer.
4. Making Noise At Midnight: On New Year’s Eve when the clock strikes midnight people blow on horns, cheer, set off fireworks. Why? It is believed that the loud noise scares away evil spirits. So, not only are you ringing in the new year but you will be starting the new year free from evil.
5. Direction of The Wind: The direction of the wind on New Year’s morning is said to predict prophesies about the coming year. Wind from the south, expect money and happiness. Wind from the north, foresees a year of foul weather. Wind from the east brings famine and bad luck, while wind from the west brings milk and fish, but the death of someone important. No wind = joy and prosperity throughout the year.
Now you know! Hope to see you on December 31st this year at Festivus!
