What Are You Doing New Year's, New Year's Eve?

I must admit that I'm usually in bed long before the clock strikes 12.
Does anyone have any fun New Year's plans?

Well tomorrow night ( 30th ) My band is playing a pre hogmanay party at a hotel with approx 180 guests taking part..For Hogmanay I shall don my kilt and scare the neighbours ( only joking ) But I will have my kilt on and Ghillie shirt and visit my local early on ( around 6.00pm ) for a few beers, then head on home and take in the bells with my family..I always toast the new year with a large dram of my favourite malt, which this year is Laphroaig ( pronounced La throw egg ) Honest..I used to stay up till the wee early hours, but due to my age, I'll be tucked in bed by around 1.00am...Anyway..I'll take this moment to wish all my friends on here a happy new year, and long may yer lum reek, which basically means, may your fire never go out..Hence why in Scotland people used to first foot with a lump of coal for your fire..

I wish! My DH is leaving on a business trip January 1st for two weeks. I am sure we will be fast asleep before midnight! I am so jealous of the people spending it in WDW!

I normally don't do much, but this year I'm going back to a sport and craft hotel, in fact I only came home from there 2 days ago (we spend every Christmas there as a family)! And I have spent those 2 days away from home! One of the traditions of a friend of ours there is to walk to the highest peak in the south of England on New Years day, we will therefore spend the 1st day of our new year at a real 'high' (419m above sea level)

Just going out to dinner. Usually crash before the New Year! We don't stay up late much any more.

Nothing planned for New Year's Eve. I will probably fall asleep on the couch and wake up right after midnight and go to bed. I am going to my friend's house on New Year's Day.

We do dinner with my parents and their friends (3 other families that I grew up with) and then we go over to our best friends' house to play board games and watch movies until midnight. After our "fun" MK NYE 2003, it's the only day of the year that I'm happy that I'm in Pennsylvania instead of at WDW! gaah

Not a single plan. We have been trying to go see the Hobbit since it came out so maybe New Years day??? I may work Wed so nothing much going on. I will have a cocktail, fight sleep, kiss the hubby at midnight and hit the bed! I would much rather be home than out with the crazies!

Gave up on a night out years ago - it's become at-home date night instead. Menu isn't finalized yet, but I'm thinking seared duck breasts and finishing up with chocolate souffle & prosecco. In bed by about 10pm and then the neighbors' fireworks wake me at midnight...

At home date night! We usually do a cheese and cracker spread for dinner, rarely make it to midnight, and then spend New Years making tamales and going for a walk along the Bay with the pups.

We always, always stay home and have a special dinner, just the 2 of us. However, since we are so near WDW I started early and made a plan for multiple days, all day long, constant, jam-packed, fun-filled plans for Dec. 30 through Jan. 4th. So ambitious of me! And so well planned out. Fast-passes, dining rezzies, parades, shows, fireworks at midnight. I planned MK on the 30th for their day-early NYE celebration, DHS on NYE all day for their special fireworks, MK on the first day of new year, Epcot on the 2nd, MK on the 3rd starting with Crystal Palace at 8am, and the 4th at DHS for one last time at the Osborne Lights. Lots of planning and reservations. Checking all those restaurants off my list. All ducks in a row.

Then hubby Rick got sick about 3 weeks ago with upper respiratory infection. And I stayed well until 2 weeks ago, could not shake it, went to doctor, feeling much better, but still not 100%. So today we went into the MK to check out the high crowds we've been reading about all week. We went in before 10am and left around 2pm, after enjoying a Dole whip float from Sunshine Terrace. We played the Sorcerer card game, traded pins, watched the Christmas parade, had fun, but decided our next trip into the parks wouldn't happen until Jan. 3rd. So NYE will be the same-old just the 2 of us. I'm happy and looking forward to many more days in the parks with smaller crowds.

Wishing you all a very happy new year.

A nice dinner at home and rent a movie. Than asleep way before midnight. The dogs will wake us by 5am the next morning so it is not worth me missing my 8 hours to see a ball drop and the new year begin!

We may go out in the evening (early evening) for Chinese food.and if anyone has thoughts along that line, don't forget that New Years eve. is the absolute busiest night of the year for Chinese take out food orders and deliveries. eek The rest of the night we will spend trying to stay awake to watch the ball drop. yay

Working until 5:00, then dinner with my hubby at 7:30. He works New Years Day and I am off so we probably won't do anything too crazy, maybe watch some movies and cheers with some champagne at midnight.

We are not doing anything either. G was going to buy us tickets to see Queen in London but it was soooo expensive and I could not justify spending over PS200 for a gig that is being broadcast live on the good old BBC. I am lucky in that I saw them years ago with Freddie and although I do like Adam Lambert it's not the same.

Oh Watchmaker I have this year been taken over to the dark side and love Laphroaig after I was given a miniature by a Fellow to say thanks before she went home to Dundee
