    I am baby sitting

    Drinking and trolling

    Nothing.

    It's always a massive let down, so this year I'm not going to bother to do anything.

    Off to watch Celtic vs Rangers, then drink alcohol til it runs out

    Refreshing the new deal page, waiting for that killer deal to come through.

    I was planning on going out but works offered me a decent amount to work night shift! No idea what to do. I'm not really a drinker anyways and could always go out on NY day.

    Well I'll be in Tynemouth and Whitley Bay making up for 'Toon_army' and 'mlear2006' having let the Geordie nation down (and I'm not even a Geordie). Shame on you two. I love New Year but it's been very disappointing in recent years. If you're not at one of the big street events, in a cozy wee village pub or anywhere in Scotland it just seems like another weekend night out.

    A 'lively' Celtic vs Rangers match in the afternoon would set it all up nicely, ideally with both teams losing.

    I've never understood the need to celebrate the tick of a clock.

    If there's another crazy HUKD party going on again this year then I will see you all here!

    You need a reason to celebrate with friends and family?

    It's an optimistic time, a time for renewal and to start again however false that might be. Plus it's a time when everyone seems in a decent mood.

    That's my point exactly .... I don't need a reason to celebrate with friends and family.

    I'm neither an optimist or a pessimist, I'm a realist.

    Happy to babysit on New Year's Eve, going out New Year's Day for a pub crawl with mates.

    But I don't wait for a tick of a clock to celebrate these occasions. Think about it, sometimes it's more convenient for the birthday person to have a celebration a few days before or after. You'd look pretty stupid dancing and shouting on the street on the 5th January for a New Year celebration.

    And this just happens to be a time when most people have time off.

    Just enjoy it maybe?

    Anyway we'll be going to a cottage some friends have rented for the evening. Not too far away but has a pool and plenty of things for the kids to play with whilst the adults celebrate with a modest drink.

    I'm going to a WWF (not the new rebranded WWE) wrestling themed party dressed up as Ric Flair hahaha
    Supposed to be guest wrestling impersonators there ascwell as a ring to watch the impersonators wrestle and even have a go if you want!

    "I'm Ric Flair! The Stylin', profilin', limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun!" -Ric Flair

    I'll be saying 'Good Bl**dy Riddance' to 2016. What a crap year that was.

    working till 12,then off to see Liverpool smash Man City.Then the local pub to get drunk and shake hands/kiss complete strangers at 12.Then stagger home about 4 am

    Of course! We will be meeting up with friends and family on New Year's Day itself, but I'm usually asleep during switch from one year to the next.

    Praying for the new year to come. Honestly, this year cant go fast enough for me.

    I will indeed look pretty stupid when I'm still dancing in the street on the 5th, but what the heck, it's New Year. It might even be outside your house where I'll fall over as I'll have had far too much to drink through celebrating New Year's Day, my July birthday, the demise of Thatcher and the moon landings as 5/1/2017 was the most convenient date to do so (and if you complain I'll politely mention that the point you make in your second sentence completely contradicts the point in your final sentence then throw up in your begonias).

    Don't wish your life away mutley.

    Cannot be ar#d with the risk of catching an illness from a crammed bar. I'm more content with a glass of red watching Jules Holland with a friends.
    Then have a quarter marathon to run at 10am the next day.

    A cottage, with a pool, and hiring it for a single evening. The elements appear incongruous, but then possibly not if trying (too) hard to portray an idyll. HNY.

    Chilling on my own, promised a lift to a friend at around 2am.
    Watch the council estates fireworks from a distant window, then watch them line up for the food banks next week.

    Ah Saturn, you are silly sometimes.

    That you think it's 'incongruous' that people could rent a cottage with a pool during the New Year period says more about your life experience than reality.

    Would you like a link to some companies that provide such accommodation or are you able to put 'cottage pool rent' into Google without it physically exerting you?

    Happy New Year to you and your's also.

    Nicely.

    The usual : Champagne reception, 5 course dinner, followed by a band and fireworks at midnight. Though this time its a Spa hotel rather than a little cottage.

    Thanks, I would love a link to a cottage with what I would assume is an indoor pool that can be hired for a single evening on New Years Eve. Hard to find a cottage (generally on the smaller side of building sizes - bigger ones are available, but rare) of a scale big enough to contain a pool suitable for evening use in mid-winter. Might give me a few ideas for future years. Look forward to the link. Cheers, HEAWD.

    So apparently googling it was too much effort. Do wrap up warm this winter.

    FYI you'd be expected to rent for a period of at least 3 nights in most cases. Our friends have rented one for the evening but are spending the week there. Again, Happy New Year to you and your's and please do wrap up warm.

    Sounds delightful (although be prepared to have to explain such an evening to those who might think it 'incongruous'). Reminds me of a few new years, but now priorities shift and I think I'm going to enjoy building the fire more than dancing until 3 in the morning.

    Best wishes for your evening.
