You've got your resolutions planned and the champagne bought. But it's not New Years without the New Years Baby! The custom of using a baby as a symbol of the start of the New Year began in Greece around 600 BC by parading a baby in a basket to honor Dionysus, the God of Wine.
Not to be outdone, join LVUK Mums in the 2010 UK New Years Baby Tour! You know your baby is the best looking on the block, so show off your New Years Baby (or big kid!) and link to your post below. Don't have kids? How about a vintage picture of yourself in UK gear? Add the badge to your blog and make sure your post includes a photo of your baby dressed in their best Union Jack/England/Scotland/Ireland/Wales wear and a bit about what your plans are for 2010. The tour will run from December 17-January 31st. If you don't have a blog and would like to submit a photo, email it to the email address listed on the right hand side of the page.
