New Year’s Eve is the perfect holiday to celebrate a fantastic year. It’s a holiday that looks forward to new beginnings, no matter what has happened in the past. This year, celebrate the good in your life by starting a time capsule. When you put something in the time capsule, you can open it the next year and reflect on how wonderful the last year has been for you. Not sure what to put in your time capsule? Here are a few ideas.
New Year’s Eve Time Capsule Ideas
Your Favourite Memory
What was your favourite memory from the last year? Write it down on an index card and stick it in a time capsule. Next New Year’s Eve, you can open the time capsule, reflect on that memory, and add a new memory! Keep doing this every year, and soon you’ll have a wonderful list of memories that you won’t forget.
Your New Year’s Goal
Most people have a New Year’s goal, but oftentimes, these goals are forgotten after a few weeks or months. Make your goal a priority by it in a time capsule. Next year, you can then pull out the time capsule and reflect on whether or not you accomplished your goal. Know that your goal is in the time capsule might give you the motivation you need to complete your goal!
A Word of Encouragement
A great way to start your New Year off right is to put a word of encouragement in a time capsule. You can have everyone in the family do this one, so that next year, you each can pull out a notecard with kind words on it. These words have the potential to make the coming year even more spectacular.
Include pictures taken throughout the year and place them in the capsule. You can even label them with the date, time and location to remind yourself of those special moments that made it worth taking a picture in the first place.
If you went somewhere special over the last year, place the souvenirs in your time capsule to remind yourself of the awesome experience. Key chains, magnets, and other small mementos will fit perfectly and be exciting to find upon opening.
Making a New Year’s Eve time capsule is a fantastic way to celebrate a wonderful year past and welcome in a new one.
