Smalls

Newsies New Year’s Headcanons
  • They all celebrate it at Katherine and Davey’s apartment
  • Unlike Thanksgiving, they don’t make food. They get a bunch of frozen appetizers and there’s always something in the oven the entire night
  • Katherine refuses to unlock the door to let anyone in until 4pm
  • Because every year, Jack, Specs, Mush, Blink, Elmer, and Albert make it a personal competition to see who gets the “best” New Year’s hat that’s about 6 years old
  • One year Mush snuck in through the window to get it an hour early
  • Katherine locks the windows now
  • They play “Never Have I Ever” as a group except only stuff they did in the past year
  • One year they all tried doing New Years Eve in Times Square but it didn’t turn out to well
  • It was way too cold and it just ended with everyone complaining to Katherine and Crutchie, the squad moms, and everyone crashing at Specs, Romeo, and Smalls’ apartment because it was the closest
  • Everyone is forced to say one thing they enjoyed about the past year by Davey
  • Similar to Thanksgiving, every year Race says “Spot’s ass”
  • They also play charades based off of stuff that happened to them in the past year
  • The year Spot and Race got together, Jack and Crutchie picked that card
  • So naturally they just started making out with each other
  • It was guessed pretty quickly
  • Race was dying of laughter, Spot was not amused
  • They often have a card tournament 
  • Usually it ends with Katherine vs Jack
  • It’s the last showdown between them of the year
  • And it gets very intense 
  • They go up to the rooftop a few minutes before midnight to watch the fireworks
  • Luckily no one else in the apartment building goes up there so they’re the only people up there year after year
  • The night usually ends with everyone passed out all over the floor, most of them drunk except for the entire Jacobs family, Crutchie, Katherine, and Race
