Poor January 13th. A boring day, stuck in the middle of a boring month, not much going for it. Wikipedia tells me that January 13th is New Year’s Eve for those using the Julian calendar, so that’s kind of nice. Also, it’s St. Knut’s Day or Tjugondag Knut, the last day of Christmas in Sweden and Finland. Best of all, it’s the Feast Day of St. Mungo. How can you not appreciate someone named Mungo? Handsome fella.

Blog excerpt

We don’t have a world famous ball drop in Prince Edward County (or a non-famous one, for that matter), but we still know how to mark the transition from the old year to the new: shotgun blasts into the sky. It’s a country thing, if not specifically a county thing, I guess: my mom knows about it from many a youthful New Year’s Eve spent on the farm. It’s startling the first time, especially if you’ve moved out here from the Big Smoke, where gun shots usually signal something else. But I look forward to it now, as much a part of New Year’s Eve as gatherings of old friends, good food, a glass of something sparkling and a kiss from a loved one. Enjoy the celebrations and thank you for making us a part of your 2010.

Sooooo. What’re you doing New Year’s Eve? Did you happen to catch that we’ll be open for dinner til 8pm? We won’t be offering noisemakers, nor glasses of bad sparkling wine, no silly hats. Just good food in a relaxed atmosphere, early enough that you can then head out or head home to usher in 2011 with your loved ones. Silly hat optional.
