New Years - Party Like It's 1999 or Stay Out of the Way?

We used to stay up eating shrimp and drinking champagne and what not. One year our kids took the train into NYC with their friends and went to Times Square to see the ball drop and just go nuts. It was zero degrees there that night. They all survived. 
 

Anymore I just go to bed around 9. I’ve seen enough NYE ball drops and the inevitable replays of same to know it’s not really earth shattering. I know I’ll be writing 2020 on my checks and correspondence well into January. :classic_ohmy:

New Years Eve is just another day, except stuff closes early.  Sometimes there's decent College Football, this year not so much

 

New Years Day is a day off with College Football.  And I eat pork and sauerkraut

Going out and partying on NYE is definitely a young person's game.  Loved it then, no interest now.  We stay up and toast the ball drop in Times Square.......from California!  :classic_laugh:

 

Then the wife and kids go to bed and I'll stay up till local midnight and ring in the New Year with just me and a nice scotch.

Thank you, so much. The laughter from that hurt. 🤣🤣🤣

 

There's actually a longer version where the guy takes a few good rights to the head afterward.

I always celebrate quietly, usually with a glass or two of tequila. Years ago, a few of us were getting ready to go out to celebrate, and my friend's dad told us to be careful, that there would be a lot of inexperienced drunks out there. That's always been there in the back of my mind, so now I consider New Years Eve, St Patrick's Day, and now Cinco de Mayo as amateur night, and I just stay home.

The wife and I stayed in. She had some wine and I enjoyed some bourbon. At midnight we watched a small fireworks display from our front porch.
