I am from the US and in the Eastern Time Zone.... It is so weird cause i got on mylot this afternoon and people internationally had already celebrated New Years Eve going on New Years Day.... I have someone I write articles for and I have even told him that I would call him.... He just writes back laughing saying "Sure you will".... For all you mylotters that have already celebrated I hope you stayed safe and had a wonderful New Years Eve and for all the ones left Be Safe tonight and don't forget the about family..

Yes, I would say one of the benefits of being on myLot is being made aware of some of these simple things. It kind of help broaden one's perspective of their society. Just like a few days ago when someone listed a thought that sleeping with your head covered might be hazardous to your health, someone from India reminded me that their climate, at least where they were at in India, was warmer than ours in the Northeast USA.

That reminds me of when I was younger... My dad had made a trip to Peru and they were sleeping in the jungles for about a week and they made sleeping nets to put over their heads because they said it could be hazardous if they were bitten in the face by mosquitoes and they also said that bugs would crawl into any orifice while sleeping.

Happy New Year to you! It's already January 2 in our time. I think we're 14 hours ahead of you.

I'll make sure to make precious memories for me and my baby girl. This is the first time I'm welcoming the year as a mom. I was still pregnant last year. :D

Good to hear from you to longtime mylotter.... It will not be long before celebration starts.... I think I am going to stay at home tonight though because this is the worst time of year to be out on the roadway

Yes it was kind of cool to see people all around the world celebrating the New Year in different time zones. When I was eating lunch it was New Year in some places. And by the time it was New Year around here(even though I had not quite made it up), the New Year as old news. So its rather interesting. Everyone have a safe and happy 2010, hopefully this year will be a good one.

This is discussion is about as interesting as the one I started last week about the different traditions for Christmas.... It is so interesting how things are so different in different places as far as traditions when it comes to the important times of years....

It really is neat to read about all the happenings for the New Year's celebrations in all those countries in the different time zones. I wonder if someone would just travel to all the time zones to celebrate the New Year's every hour. I guess you have to be rich to be able to do that. lol. I hope everyone enjoyed their New Year's wherever you are.

Now we know how Santa Claus does it with all these time zones changes....That would be neat to be able to travel to all the different time zones during the new year to see the festivities.... of course you could not travel everywhere.... even in the US the east coast is 4 hours ahead of the west coast so a plane could really come in handy with this venture.....

It has been really different all week since Christmas and Christmas Eve we had the same time lapse. Yes, it makes international friendships different as well.

Maybe the makes an unique friendship among mylotters because of timezones, cultures and all the other differences we may have....

I am EST also and a few more hours to go, hope I make it and my son see the ball drop for the first time but he is being very hyper now and may just wear himself out!! :( :) Yes, I think it is very interesting how we learn new cultures, meet new friends, and how each country celebrates New Years or any holiday for that matter. Its very intriguing. I have stayed home also, much safer I feel. Happy early New Year to you and everyone else on MyLot.

I hope you have a nice time this year with your son and remember the times you get to spend with them.... they grow up so fast....they do not realize how special we think they are until they actually grow up theirselves.

Isn't weird to know and talk to people that are twelve hours ahead of you... I think it is so cool how time works.

I am currently in a time zone where we have already celebrated the coming of the new year. We are already half way into the day of the new year. All is very quiet where I am now.
