We are pretty low key on New Years eve, I like that.

We stay in, watch movies, eat, watch the ball drop and open a fortune cookie for the coming year.

I don't do anything special to ring in the New Year!

I don't do much either.  I have something to drink at home, watch the ball drop and then go to bed.

 We stay home with ds 12 and watch the New Year come in watching it on tv.

 This year I am ringing in the new year with my DGD while her mom goes out.  We will ring in the New Year with an I Love Lucy marathon, popcorn and Izzy's.  Fabulous!

I like to go somewhere to have some food...early on in the day or either have some stuff at home and have friends / family over.  Or...I have just stayed home and done nothing and that was nice too  lol

 It has been a long time since I have gone to a New Year's party.  It bet it has been over 10 years ago.  I have had family over in the past, but mostly I am a home body and just ring in the year at home.  I think I will check on the fireworks.  I live pretty close to the area the city uses for the displays.  It may be a good thing to do with my DGD.  Whatever you decide to do, I hope it is fun!

I do like parties with the right people. When I was single and went to parties somewhere else, I would hide out in the bathroom when it was midnight. I had learned that I didn't like random strangers trying to give you a New Year's kiss!

Most years we have spent at home, stayed up watching old movies and drank some sparkling juice with the kids before going to bed. there have been a few times when we fell asleep before midnight!

Often on New Year's Day I would make Hoppin' John. I haven't done that in awhile. Maybe I will do that this year.

We had gone to a party last year but it wasn't much fun. We were home by midnight. I had saved some sparklers from the 4th of July for New Year's Eve but I forgot where I had put them last year and we had gone to that party. Will I remember this year?!?
