The DuJour 5×5: New Year’s Edition

DuJour editors spill their resolutions, top predictions for 2014 and more

Each week, we ask five editors five questions on a different topic. This week’s installment focuses on New Year’s traditions—what they resolve and predict for the year ahead and what they’ll be doing when the clock strikes midnight.
