Am I the only one who doesn't celebrate?

New Year's? I don't see the point. 

We don't celebrate Easter either...we're not Christian and don't do the Easter bunny.

DH is a New Year baby, so we just do a little something for his birthday.

He's going to be 40 this year. I think I get him a black cake, lol.

Yes to St. Patty's day (I'm 100% Irish). No to V-day, yes to Thanksgiving, kind of to Memorial day. We take time to give thanks to the fallen soldiers for their sacrifice but we don't do anything extravagant. No to labor day.

We don't really celebrate New Years either. Too many people out, I don't love crowds or huge wait lists. We do celebrate Easter just because, well, candy.

Well we celebrate Easter. We're catholic but we do it for the fun too.
New Years is an introduction to a whole new time. When not pregnant we hire a sitter to stay at the house with us and we get sloppy drunk we shoot fireworks and bbq.
We bbq and have a party for Labor Day, memorial day, and we go out and get shitty on St Patrick's day. It's our one major night out a year.
Why not new years?

We celebrate New Years at home with the kids. Confetti, glow sticks, music, etc. last year we were on the west coast and celebrated at 9 with the Times Square ball drop. That way the kids didn't stay up too late. This year we are in a different time zone and it will be more difficult.

Yall are no fun. These are huge excuses to throw a party. I get 20-40 people over..... Beer pong, bbq, kegs, etc. it's a blast. We have upwards of 25 kids here. Yes there's a sober adult.

I don't really celebrate any holidays except Christmas and I only do that for my kids. If they were grown, I wouldn't bother
