New Year's Plans

What are you doing? Have any traditions?

This is our first year together, and it looks like plans in the city with his friends have fallen through... We do not want to go ourselves and we're both big on traditions - but don't have one for new year's yet.

TIA

My brother and his wife have a neat tradition. They go to a great sushi restaurant and a movie. They have done it since they got married.

I always watch Dick Clark's show. Even when I'm somewhere else, I'll watch the ball drop. Most years I'm at home. I've been to a couple of bug hotel parties, and when I was married my husband sometimes had to work (musician) on NYE. I'd go with him to those performances.

This year I'm going with three friends to see a band in the next town. We reserved a table for $20 each, which includes a champagne toast at midnight and party favors.

We always do a game night with family/friends. I love, love, love games & would play them every weekend if I could but hubs is NOT a game guy. So this is the one night I can get him to participate!

Nope, no traditions nor any plans yet. I choose to be spontaneous & do what I'm in the mood for, whether it's as simple as just going to the movies or relaxing at home all day to being on a trip.

We have friends stop by for an Open House on New Years Eve, then my DH does a huge pot of his famous chili on New Years Day and my parents come over for that.

New Year's Eve will be a fun one for you OP

This year I will attend a gig my SO is performing at, it is a small venue and he will likely invited me to sing with the band. This time I will.

NYE is my birthday so we have always gone out at least for a nice dinner. In the early days we always had to wait hours for a table and felt rushed because it was so busy but now we go to an early dinner, like 4 o'clock. It's more relaxing. Sometimes a movie or bowling after and sometimes straight home or to friends. Mostly home now for boardgames with the kids.
I always put a pork roast in the crockpot, we have a little at midnight for luck and the rest for lunch during football.

It's our anniversary (5 years) so we are going out for a fancy dinner, and then just going home to continue celebrating by ourselves. We'll probably go to bed fairly early, although hubby just told me that our reservation is at 8pm.

Mr. Bookgeek and I have been together for 10 years. We hate being on the road on NYE, don't drink much, and are not huge on crowds.

We select a meal to make that neither of us have ever cooked, (or in the beginning cooked for the other) and make it. We call it our Fancy A$$ New Years Eve. We've made grilled tuna steak, roast duck, homemade pierogi, roast vension.... this year it's beef wellington.
After dinner, we usually cue up a movie and/or make out.

On January 1st, we have our luck food: sauerkraut and kielbasa (I'm Polish and German) and black eyed peas (he's a southern boy).

We usually stay home and watch Dick Clark's show.

This year we are going to an early movie (around 5-6pm) then out for a quick bite to a little hamburger place. Then home to watch Dick Clark's show. DH rarely makes it to midnight. I will only because DS's will be out and I'll be worried till they get home.

Bookgeek: fun idea about your dinner!

No set tradition here. There were a few years, before anyone we hung out with had kids, that we or another couple had a house party and everyone just slept over. In recent years, there were a couple of times we've gone on a boat in Boston harbor to watch the fireworks. This year one of my neighbors is holding a family-friendly party, with "midnight" at 8:00 or 9:00. I think I'm really going to enjoy it.

This year we are going winter camping and possibly taking along the neighbors kids. I'm hoping that this becomes our tradition.

We are doing a bonfire with family and some close friends. We will probably start around 7:00 and stay out for several hours . We usually get home in enough time to see the ball drop on Dick Clark's show.
