How do you celebrate New Years?

I don't have any traditions. When I was a teen , I would listen to the countdown of the best songs of the year on the radio.But now I either watch a film or a show on t.v. until 11:57. Then I see the ball drop on ABC. After that? It all depends. One year I saw Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers films all night. How about you? How do you bring in the new year?

There is nothing special. We will go to my dad's house and we will stay together during the New Year holiday. To me, it's much important to celebrate it like this way. I love China

We have a music show over here in the UK called Jools' Annual Hootenanny; I tend to watch that to see the new year in. In London, many folks descend on Trafalgar Square, but the crowds are like you wouldn't believe. I went one year, just one. Time was I used to go to New Year parties, but these days, I just chill and watch a little telly. I can't believe the Noughties are nearly over...

I can believe the crowds. Here there, everyone goes to Times Square in new York to watch a huge ball drop to mark the New Year.It is televised each year on ABC.Question.What are the Noughties?

The Noughties is the name some folks have given this decade, the '00s...it has to be known as something! What will next decade be called? The Tennies? Who knows...

I stayed watching tv inside at home. ~When I was single I used to go out with friends. But now that I have a son and keeps us inside, I opt for more homely entertainment, inviting friends or relatives over for a drink or watch a dvd.

I am single and yet I have never gone out on New Years Eve. I stayed home and watched a tape of a beloved mini series.

I usually go to a local calibration in Northampton. They have events all day. I want to go again this year but it is suppose to snow and it will be icy. I might not go and spend the whole evening hanging out with my TV and my cat and my assistant.

Let's hope the forecast changes so you can go. Happy New Year.

I used to go to countdowns with my friends but this year, I decide not to. I do like the atmosphere but I hate the crowd. I hate being a crowded place. This year, I decide to stay at home and spend it with my family. I'll probably be watching anime or a movie.

Watching a movie is a great way to bring in the new year.

Truthfully I usually go to bed before the new years comes in....I might watch a little tv during the course of the evening and fix a pizza but I don't like dealing with the crowds. Two years in a row I went out with friends...and it was okay but I'd much rather stay home...to me it's really not a big deal....just the start of a new year.

We usually just stay home and not really celebrate the new year. The past couple years we have already been asleep by midnight as my husband works really early the next day. Sometimes my son will stay up and watch the Rockin New Years Eve on tv but he is usually asleep too.

Every year the family usually has some sort of special meal together all evening long. We usually just spend our time apart doing our own things and then if we're awake and feel like doing so we'll wish each other a happy near year around midnight but that is about it.
