For New Years eve, we have family over. My daughter has her best friend over, and my siblings come. We have munchies, drinks and play poker with pennies. We have an outside fire place and usually have a fire after poker. What do you do? I prefer to stay home, it is safer and I don't like jail. Do you go out?

We went to Texas to visit my sister and her family. On New Years Eve we stayed in and played a game, we had a couple of margaritas, and watched the television for when it was time for the New Year. We had a nice time. It was serene and peaceful but very nice.

this time around we went bowling...that is always such a great time for me as I love to bowl. It was me, my boyfriend, my oldest daughter and her boyfriend, my middle daughter and her boyfriend and my youngest daughter that went.

When I was younger, New Years Eve was big for me. I would go out and find socials and celebrate it to it's finest. Now that I'm in my 30s all I usually do is pick up shifts at work or stay home and treat it like it's an ordinary day. This year again I picked up a shift at work so I'm getting paid for a stat. I'm looking forward to making that money for it. Have a great day and happy new year

No I stay home or I leave a day ahead and come home a day after. As I don't trust the people on the road. I don't drink but they do and think they can drive. I almost got ran off the road one year as I was the driver for all the drunk friends. I told them never again. So yes this year I'm staying at home. Your friend onlydia

One of the most memorable New Years eves ever for my wife and I was when we had most of our friends over here. That way, I did not have to go home afterwards.
