Party, but without going bonkers

Party, but without going bonkers Christmas and New Year have changed the mood with people the world over set for a week-long bash. Safety is important to ensure mishaps do not mar the mood. IT’S PART TIME! With Christmas and New Year round the corner, everyone is in the party mood. As we get ready for Christmas revelry and the New Year celebrations, there are few safety points we should not lose sight of, which we do in our merry-makings and parties. Remember the cliché: Better safe than sorry! Be careful this celebration season to avoid anything that can ruin the fun. We want Santa to bring gifts, toys and happiness; not bandage and ambulance. Be safe, for the sake of others, so that they are safe and nobody has to suffer for anybody’s carelessness. New Year is a time when we try to forget our worries. It’s a good idea to have fun on the New Year’s Day, but with the same concern for safety. We find it convenient to forget the past year mishaps. But it is important to remember the devastation a mistake can cause. On 2006 New Year’s day, Hyderabad saw an accident that is hard to forget. Tragedy clouded New Year celebrations in some families as six youngsters died and 11 others were injured in road accidents after midnight in and around the city. All of them were allegedly on a high and were zipping in their vehicles for year-end fun. This is what happens when we forget that being safe is the biggest festival of life. Life itself is a celebration. We must never take it for granted. So, let’s enjoy this festive season while following all the safety measures. Do every fun thing but moderation is the key. Drive carefully and take care. Have a safe celebration!

I do not support drinking at any time. So for me going bonkers with booze is absolutely unpardonable. One should celebrate christmas with pomp and grandeur and in a sober state. Then there would be no risk of injuries and all the things you mentioned either. Nice post.
