We could do it like the quaint little town of Tallapoosa, GA with a possum drop.
Starting at 9 PM the celebration continues until 12:30 AM or until everybody falls asleep.
This year's will be "The Largest Possum Drop Ever!"
The tradition began a few years ago, possibily to honor the town's original name, Possum Snout.
"There's a lot of excitement," Tallapoosa Mayor Pete Bridges said.
"We have this huge, beautiful lit cage. He's inside that. He draws down real slowly, until it draws down to 12 o'clock and then it's on the ground."
"Everybody sits around and takes pictures of it. And then we shoot fireworks," Bridges said. "It's beautiful," he added.
