Hope everyone has a happy time tonight. Another thing my family had in mind was lighting a couple of lanterns in memory of my cousin and grandmother, both of whom passed away last year.

Then I'm turning in for the night. Early shift tomorrow. :)

I'm straight edge, so the hardest stuff I'll be drinking tonight is sparkling apple juice. (Which is great, because I love the stuff.)

A friend of mine and I are going to get together and drink and watch 'Allo 'Allo! And then possibly go out.

My family has an excellent New Year's Eve tradition of playing board games to ring in the year (usually Life). Can't wait!

That sounds like a great tradition!

i'll be partying with some of the same people I've spent most New Year's Eves with since 1968

I'll be at a friend's house eating freshly smoked meats and playing board games :D

The last several years I've stayed up late reading fairy tales. This year I'm going swing dancing at a venue in Maryland!

I'm pregnant so I was 100% painfully sober.

10 minutes before midnight was spent running from the carpark where my friends and I had just bought booze and we ran to the outdoors area where fireworks was going to be set off. At midnight we watched 5 minutes of fireworks (it always lasts for 15 minutes every new year at that place) and ran back to the car to get away from the venue before the inevitable jam. We were still caught in a mini jam though. The fireworks were awesome. First time in my life seeing EPIC fireworks right on top of us raining colour down at us. It's like what 3D movies aspire to be (and fail horribly). Most awesome fireworks display ever. Much better than seeing it from a distance.
