For the last 5 or so years I've had a burning bowl ceremony on New Years Eve. Not ones to go out and party, we stay in and write down some of the things we no longer wish to carry with us into the new year and then burn the paper, releasing those undesirable things. Fire in the bible symbolizes purification, not hell as we've been taught to believe. I keep meaning to buy a new firepit, although I believe we're having one built this next summer, but last year I just set fire to the paper over the toilet (not as nice as a firepit, but it did the job). This year I think I'll let my three little pyros take over in the back yard. Try it, it's kinda fun and it's a nice alternative to working up a body-temple destroying hang-over.
