Question of the Day Dec 28th.

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Wow hard to believe that in 4 days we will be into 2009. So here's my question for today?

Do you have special plans for New Year's Eve.

This year I don't, most years I'd either spend with family and friends. This year I decided that I would just spend the evening relaxing at home with the kitties, and watch the New Year's Eve special on TV. I guess that is one of the aspects of getting older, your less inclined to celebrate the passing of the years.

No special plans at the moment. Just cuddling up with the kitties and surfing the web/watchng TV/turning in early.

We don't have any plans either. Probably just watch the ball drop on TV and have a glass of champagne.

We call people from different time zones at the moment it turns to the new year in their time zone. The first people we will be calling is my niece in France.

No plans here. Probably spend a quiet evening at home and go to bed early.

Matt and I will be spending the evening together, not sure yet what we'll do, but will likely just stay in.

We will be having a lobster & steak dinner at home. Probably rent a couple of movies, and be in bed well before midnight! I think the last time we actually saw midnight on New Years Eve, my grand daughter was with us, she was 4 months old, and we were up for her feeding, as we gave her parents their first night out after her birth.

No real special plans for us. We'll probably just stay home and watch the ball drop. Spend some snuggle time together. Get more excited that our house should be finished that month!

Nope. My fiance just plays his game on the computer, and I usually go to bed early. It's just another night for me, nothing real special for us.

It's my birthday so we are having a party at our house complete with rooms for people to stay if they go over board with the drinks....
The day after we are going to clean up and get ready for the next work day.....

Yes every year I have a party at my house. Safe with little or no alcohol so kids can join in the fun also. We have lots of different snacks and we count down with the ball.

I think we are going to Toronto to a friends house. If we don't, we will just stay home and do nothing.

No plans at the moment, but to stay home and watch the countdown and watch everyone else in the neighborhood pop fireworks. DH hasn't been feeling well for awhile, so we will probably play it low key.

We are staying here and having Dip and Chips.
We will also have Fondue
We have not decided what we will have for New Years Dinner.

No plans for me. I really, really wanted to go to the 2nd Annual Winter Classic at Wrigley Field (RedWings vs Blackhawks) on New Year's Day. Unfortunately, I'm on call that day, 7am Thursday to 7am Friday....I'll be in bed, asleep when the new year arrives.

Our usual New Year's Eve is to do a nice dinner, late, so that we're just winding down from dessert in time to toast the New Year, and chat a little more before falling into bed, usually before 1 am. Sometimes, this includes company -- only family or close friends, never many -- in which case we tend to go on a little later, but not much, and not rowdy.

Not sure whether it will be just the two of us, or more, this year. We haven't been very proactive about that planning, but then we do tend to go with the flow anyway, and the people we would include know that about us, and are much the same.

Going over to Tristans for dinner, then we climb up the big hill at the back of his house, sit on some comfy chairs with drinks and watch the fireworks.

No plans as of yet, but where I am working a 12 hour shift the next day its possible I may end up in bed way before midnight.

We never do anything for New Years. We have never been big party going people. The only time we have ever gone to a party on New Years was when we were down in Dallas visiting my husband's best friend. We went to Six Flags during the day, and then that night had a big party at his friend's house with a bunch of our other friends that went down there with us. It was fun being the only sober person (I don't like to drink at parties, plus someone had to drive us to the hotel) watching all the drunk people being stupid.

We're going to my moms to visit, since my sis is down from another province... afterwards one of my neighbours is having a houseparty. It all depends on how long we stay at mom's and how we feel.

We're not huge partiers, nor do we always stay up to ring in the new year. It's just another day.
post #22 of 33
No plans here....probly just hang out since we both work the next day
post #23 of 33
Not sure what we're going to end up doing. We have been invited to a few different things. One is a party at a friend's house, but his wife is SOOOO irritating that we might bow out. We'll have to see who else will be there.

No plans as of yet. Might go into the city to have a few drinks!

My kids and I are going to a friends house in Albuquerque, we live thirty minutes south of Albuquerque, for a New Years party. We are going to stay the night and go home early on New Years day.
post #27 of 33
I've told everyone that i'm staying in this year. I'm fed up of standing in the cold waiting for bagpipes to play in the new year, or worse still having to go out early so as to grab some seats in a bar

It's all a big hype for new year now, so i'll be ringing friends and clinking my glass of champagne with them over the phone

So far no plans. Sometimes we end up at my parents place or at my brother's, but nothing in the works so far. At this rate, we'll hang out at home, game a bit and have toast in the new year with just us and the cats. That's what we do most years and it's pretty popular.

Happy Birthday! Great about the rooms! Happy tax deduction for your parents!

We are going for a late dinner at the restaurant where we spent last New Year's Eve. It is 10 minutes from where we live, has great food, and the New Year's celebration is just perfect - not to much, not to little.

DH always works so I doubt we'll be up together. They do have a gathering planned at the church (games, food and music); but with DH always being tired, we never go.

New Years day we will have a casual dinner at my Mother's. We usually do a make your own sandwich platter and then mix up some dips and things and just relax together.
