New Year's resolutions

In Germany, many people delight in making New Year’s resolutions and (at least) try to stick to them. Stopping to smoke, losing weight, or spending less are favorites. Do you do the same in your country? What are typical resolutions there?

  • Read more.
  • Spend just a little less time online (related to the one above).
  • Try out some new recipes for bread and winter vegetables (not at the same time – these just happen to be the fields I am interested in right now in the kitchen).
  • Deal with the huge heap of mending that has been assembling over the last months (possibly years).

What are your resolutions?
