I'm not working at all New Year's Eve or New Year's Day (I love paid holidays!) But I'll be staying at home by myself. Don't feel like going to my friend's party and getting a minor just 7 months before 21. Nuh uh! I'll stay home and post on a.net!

I totally despise New Years (New Year's Eve, to be precise). Seems there is always something going wrong on that date. Countless fights with my mother, my last day of work (in an airline, mind you!), my grandpa's passing away... It must be a curse or something...
Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

As I've gotten older, I've become less thrilled about New Years or
celebrating New Years Eve. I've always looked at it as amateurs
night. Way too many drunken idiots acting stupid. Wifey and I
usually stay close to home.
Back in the day, I never needed an excuse like New Years Eve to
tie one on. Monday morning at 2:30 was excuse enough to party.

I've just got in from a well....somewhat dull evening at a club - It was dead! Probably everyone saving themselves for tomorrow - i've got tickets for a club - but can't drink as I'll be marshalling planes at 10am the next morning!
Because wherever you go tonight there will be the best buzz of the year. There's no other night out like it. You'll see people you haven't seen for a long time, and meet new ones too. It has an atmosphere all of its own!

Quoting TupolevTu154 (Thread starter): Since I've been old enough to remember, I've never really understood the point in celebrating New Year.
Ok, fair enough, it's a great excuse to go and get pissed out of your minds, but why?
Personally, I treat it as any other evening. I just wake up next year Silly
Can someone shed some light onto this for me? Does anybody else feel the same?
The real question is: WHOSE New Year is it ? 2007 is in the Christian scheme of things. It's a different year by the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Jewish, and Muslim calendars (and others that I did not include for which I apologize). And, for those following the orthodox calendar, it won't be New Year until Jan 13, 2007 (by the Gregorian calendar).
Confused enough by now ?
My plan is to cook a very nice chicken curry, basmati rice, nan, have a very nice meal with a beautiful lady and retire while we're still up to performing.
Ooooohhh....almost forgot to mention the strawberry & passionfruit tort.
To all: celebrate as you wish, and may peace follow in your footsteps.

I'm seventeen now and I have grown to treating the 31st December like any other night. When I was a child, the whole family used to be together and set off fireworks etc... now the whole family is dispersed. I have work at 5am tomorrow!
