New Year’s Eve is a time to look back on the past year while also looking toward the future. And for some reason, a lot of people like to do this introspective thinking while guzzling down lots of champagne and partying the night away. If you’re like me, this type of revelry may not be your scene. But what happens if you still want to celebrate the new year? Check out my list.
- Go to dinner – 2 years ago, I spent part of NYE at a sushi dinner with 2 friends. It was a nice and lowkey way to close out the year. When it comes down to it, there’s nothing better than friends and food.
- Have a party at your house – Your house, your rules. This party can be as laid-back or rowdy as you want it to be.
- Go to a house of worship – If you’re religious, end the year in a church, temple, or mosque
- Sleep – There’s something nice about going to sleep in one year and waking up in another. Get your 8 hours in and wake up nice and refreshed for 2017.
- Watch all of the NYE coverage – Snuggle up with some blankets, junk food, and your TV. Watch the performances and revelry from the comfort of your own home,
- Go see the ball drop – Different countries and cities have different NYE celebrations, with the most famous being the ball drop in NYC. I actually went to see the ball drop in Times Square last year, and it was a fun experience.
- Do something you would do any other day – I’m excited for 2017, but I would like to welcome in the new year with something I do on a regular basis. As of right now, I’m planning on spending NYE in my bed, watching Netflix.
