Normally I do not stay up to watch the year change but this year I probably will stay up at least til 12:30am, maybe a little longer. i will be spending it with someone this year so it has more meaning this time. Definitely am glad that 2006 is almost over.

I usually stay up past midnight, one or so. I like to ring in the new year and am not really in any hurry to rush to bed. It's a fun time, fun to celebrate a bit.

mmm probably i`ll do that but after 20 years, because now i have only 21 years and most of new year`s eve i`m spending with my girlfriend and others friends. But the next day i`m watching at tv and too i`m facinated by the variety of celebrations produced by each nation in the world. i like very much to see the one`s from Paris. very nice lights .

I usually stay up a little later than 12:01 am in order to tidy things up. When we were kids, we were told to jump at the strike of midnight so that we would grow taller in the coming year. Funny, isn't it?

We don't really do much on New Years Eve, we might go out for dinner and return home shortly after that. We're usually up for the 12AM mark but we don't really celebrate in a party-like manner. Basically just a quick "Happy New Year", possibly a kiss and then that's it lol, we'll often watch the ball drop on TV.

I usually stay up until around 1am. Last year I stayed at the NICU with my youngest son until the New Year and his daddy stayed with his oldest brother that way there was at least one of us with each of our sons. This year we will all be together. My oldest son loves to watch the ball drop on TV.
