Having fun on New Year's Eve is due in large part to the company you keep, more than it is where you are the moment the clock turns over to a new year. So if your plans to go to a New Year's event have been cancelled, gather treasured friends and family in your own home and make the evening special.
We make a big deal of New Year's Eve, and rightly so. It's a time stamp. It signals new growth, endless potential, a chance to start over, to make promises to yourself for a better life. Of course, we have this same opportunity each and every day. But entering a new year seems to kick all of these things into gear.
Of course, there are many folks who long ago discovered the joy of being home for New Year's Eve. There's no need for a babysitter, no stress over finding a place to park, the food is outstanding, you can dress up or dress down, and if you get worn out or find you were "over-served" the comfort of your bedroom is close by.
