Have any plans for New Years Eve? You should stay awake until midnight! What are you going to do to occupy yourself and others until the ball drops? Some people stay home watching movies, eating fun snacks and drinking special drinks. When the ball drops they toot their horns and yell “Happy New Year,” maybe dance, and usually go to bed shortly afterwards. Is that your style? I think not. Here is a list of events for the true New Years Eve celebrators. Make the night interesting — it will be a night to remember.
