This is a picture of the New Year’s Ball that has dropped in Times Square every year since 1907, except 1942 and 1943. (Can you guess why it didn’t drop in those two years?) Click on the Ball to find out more fun facts about the New Year’s Eve Ball at the official site of Times Square.
I thought it would be fun to start out the year making some predictions about 2014. What do you think will happen — weather, politics, entertainment, sports…it’s all fair game. Put your predictions in the Comments section. REMEMBER: Comments are moderated and only appropriate and polite comments will be approved and posted. Please, be kind to the moderators: don’t spam our space and use only your first name or your first and last initial.
One more thing about predictions — they’re a great thing to do as you read. In the middle of a story or a book or an article, keep yourself engaged by thinking about what might happen next… or at the end.
Can you predict how I’m going to end this post?
Make 2014 a great year!
