    New Year's Celebrations

    Do you have parties for this holiday?

    I have enjoyed having friends over and it was never a really expensive bash. We avoided the alcohol rages and just had family kind of fun with a homecooked meal or a party lay out of pizza, nachos, garlic bread, veggie platter and other chips with wine later when the new year came.

    We usually don't do New Years we normally do a huge Christmas and are so frazzled by New Years we rest and do as little as we can.

    A nice relaxing drive to the beach during the day... no plans for parties or late night happenings. I have a different sleep scheule than most and need my rest throughout periods of the night since I'm up at various all odd hours. No big holiday meal plans either. I'm sitting here realizing how expensive everything can get if we let it... a little spent here on this and then a little more on that, it all adds up... this new year I need to practice a lot more frugal ways of living.

    We usually just have a bunch of appetizers, dip and chips and desserts that everyone snacks on.. Sometimes we will get together and play poker with my family. Everyone spends the night so we don't have to worry about accidents or anyone getting a DUI. This year we are just staying home and probably watching movies. I am not sure what my kids have planned. They will probably be going to New Years parties with their friends.

    Nothing special here; we are nightowls all the time so watch the ball drop and have a meal which includes black-eyed peas and leafy greens because we have to eat and following a bit of tradition is fun. AM

    We don't really do anything special, just have a nice meal on New Year's Eve and then maybe play some Monopoly or something, and watch the ball drop and toast the new year in with a very small glass of Bailey's. My mother will be here this year, but she usually doesn't stay up that late. We're not really party animals, obviously. LOL!

    When I lived by myself and went to church, I sometimes would go to midnight service and really enjoyed the few times I'd gone. But, when I moved back with my mom & sister, we never go out or doing anything much special for New Years' except watch the ball drop and usually eat some noodles (sometimes with tempura). I never got into the blackeyed peas meal, but did eat it a few times with some of the church ladies back then.
