Becky and I would like to wish all of our readers a Happy New Year!
We were in Boston yesterday for [First Night](http://www.firstnight.org/). Becky was working at the [Otis House](http://www.historicnewengland.org/visit/homes/otis.htm), where they were giving free tours to First Night revelers. I was helping out by volunteering in the refreshment room. It was a lot of fun – those folks from [Historic New England](http://www.historicnewengland.org/) are a very nice bunch! I really enjoyed getting to meet all of the people that Becky works with, as well as the First Night revelers who stopped in to the refreshment room for some hot cocoa and cookies, and for a chance to sit down and warm up after a long, cold day of walking around.
I also had the chance to take some photos before helping out, and you can see those [here](http://prwdot.org/gallery2/v/events/2005/first_night/)!
