Ring in the New Year Your Way
Posted on 12/19/2011
Oftentimes, in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, we forget to make plans for the New Year. It’s a time to reflect, a time to make new goals and a time to celebrate. So break out the noisemakers, make those reservations and get ready to ring in the New Year the way you like best.
Night on the Town
If around town everyone knows you as the life of the party, then why should New Year’s Eve be any different? You wouldn’t want to disappoint anybody on the last night of the year. So put on your New Year’s Eve swag and get ready to party the night away. Grab your girlfriends, just the guys or your favorite party crew. Start the night off by making reservations at your favorite restaurant and enjoying a sit-down meal. It’s the last night of the year, so why not treat yourself? After that, scope out the town happenings. There are sure to be local venues with live music and a good atmosphere where you can rock out until the countdown to midnight begins.
Relaxed and Low-Key
Maybe big crowds and lots of people aren’t your thing. Plus the sound of off-key karaoke makes you uneasy. Or maybe you’d rather be hanging out with your kids at home. If you match any of these descriptions, then this is the perfect New Year’s Eve option for you. Start the night off by making your life easier—order from your favorite restaurant and pick it up. That way you get out of the house, but you still get to enjoy the night from your cozy couch. Then, watch either a new movie you’ve been dying to see or your favorite classic. If you want to be more active, host a game night among your friends and family members. That should keep you occupied with fun until it’s time for the big countdown.
Best of Both Worlds
If you’re looking to get out, but don’t want to make a night of it, then this option is for you. Head out to your favorite restaurant for a dinner with friends or that special someone. Then you can extend the night out with a party appearance, or maybe catch a movie. When you’ve had enough socializing, come back home and slip underneath a cozy blanket in time to watch the ball drop on television. You don’t have to stay out the whole night to have a good time. And by starting your night off early, you can beat the crowds and still have plenty of time for some relaxation.
