It's once again that time of year when we ponder the big question: What’s your New Year’s resolution?  

I must admit I don’t subscribe much to the New Year’s resolution hoopla. I just want to have a good time on New Year’s Day. (Resolutions can wait until February.) 

That’s why I’m offering a resolution we can all get behind.

These countdown cookies are just as fun for a New Year's party centerpiece as they are for your guests to take home as favors.

Resolve to party with HGTV. Now, doesn’t that sound like much more fun?

We're counting down 4 fabulous reasons why you should include HGTV in your New Year’s Day festivities.

4) Live and Commercial Free Coverage of Rose Parade 2016

Rose Parade 2008 Rainforest Float

A gecko, snake and frog "band" accompanies a pair of singing Toucans in a rainforest made of wheatgrass. This float, for Rose Parade 2008, was the 30th self-built float for La Canada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association.

The Rose Parade is one of our most beloved holiday traditions at HGTV, with the magical floats, the impressive marching bands, and of course roses, roses, and more roses. 

Plus, our charming hosts Jonathan and Drew Scott, Nancy O’Dell, and curbside coverage from Josh Temple will keep you entertained all morning long. 

And did I mention, it’s live and commercial free?

2) HGTV Dream Home 2016

Celebrate the 20th anniversary of HGTV Dream Home with an exclusive tour from Merritt Island, Florida.

Looking North

Instead of adopting the typical vernacular of Florida homes painted in tropical colors the design team at HGTV Dream Home 2016 took their cues from the styles of those found in the Hamptons on New York’s Long Island.
