Did you celebrate the new year or did you live your day like any other day? Is there anyone who doesn't celebrate it? If you do celebrate it, how do you celebrate it? Is there a tradition in your culture/family? I was thinking about this because someone I know worked New Year's eve and just went to bed early since they have work the next day too. And in other parts of the world, new years for many, doesn't correspond to January 1st. How meaningful is it to you?

My boyfriend and I went to his friends in Oklahoma. They just built a new house after tearing down their old one and we had a great time. The house they built was so much bigger than the old one and it was so beautiful inside. They have so many bedrooms so now there is room for us to stay when we come. We also shot off fireworks at midnight which is a tradition for my boyfriend and I cooked black-eyed peas with ham hocks which is supposed to bring you good luck if you eat them on New Years Day. Their whole family was there and it was a lot of fun.

I guess every one does the black eyed peas thing... just looked it up! Never heard of it until now, and I was born here.

My husband's and my idea of a good New Year's celebration is to go next door to the Army Navy Air Force club, have a few drinks with the guys, and ring in the New Year there. :)

Sounds pretty rowdy! Are the drinks free?

I didn't really celebrate New Years. My husband and I were just watching shows, talking, relaxing, and little things like that. We did wish each other and other people a happy New Year, but that was pretty much it. We didn't really do anything special or anything.

not really... my new year is just like any other ordinary day and we only stay at home to rest and relax ourselves... which is good because we are usually so busy and do not have the time to enjoy the house... so during this holiday season, it is good that we can stay at home to enjoy the house with my parents and have a rest... take care and have a nice day...

We were watching live television show on TV to see fireworks in action. Although we did not get as much excitement as we were in the location of the live event but we just want to celebrate it with family and we were grateful that we have passed the year with joy and we thought that we need to get stronger and wiser in the new year. We always have one aim is to become a better person year by year. Simple to put, every new year is meaningful for us, especially when celebrating it with members of our family.
