We'll be celebrating at home with a movie and fried oysters. We live on a dead end road, the entrance to which is at a major intersection where the state police always set up a "check point" on New Year's Eve. That pretty well precludes having any guests that aren't staying the night.
It's OK, though...we never make it to midnight anymore, anyway.

I don't much feel like celebrating so I'll be home probably sleeping.

LOL!

I rarely ever make it to midnight unless I have to, holiday or not.

I can't remember the last time I saw the new year in, and that lack of recollection is not due to overindulgence of adult beverages!

I am planning to stay home on New Years Eve because I have a very full day of parties all day Monday.

We'll be going to a fancy schmancy, catered, open bar borefest at the home of dear GF's rich uncle's home here in Las Vegas.
A little later, we'll sneak off to watch the fireworks show over the Strip before heading home.

I'd rather head DOWN to the Strip early and have fun with the thousands and thousands of folks on Las Vegas Boulevard (which will be closed to vehicular traffic from Russell Rd to Sahara Blvd. at 5pm). I've done that before and it was a blast, but GF's family is in town and I'm sure they're gonna want to go to the party so, hey, whaddagonnado??

We will go to our friends (neighbors) annual New Year's Eve party. Lots of food and drink (everyone brings a passing dish). We are all families who became friends through our kids knowing each other.

I'm thinking...double battered fried hot wings...2 or 3 sauces...
maybe a few sweets...
Then if we make it till the midnight hour..go outside...They ring all the church bells in town and the young folks do fireworks...Then we just might sleep through the whole thing....We never know!

This is what we do every New Years for a couple of years now. My sister and I along with our husbands go out for an early dinner at Assagio's. We're home just as it's getting dark because both of us have dogs that have problems with the fireworks noise. Her dog will bark and bark and mine will shake and hide. Hawaii goes all out with fireworks on New Years, and our dogs, along with everyone else with respiratory problems suffer with it. I wish they would ban fireworks.
