I have to work tomorrow so it's not hardly a holiday for me.
Not that I want to be hung over, but for me, it helps me realize I'm not a 20 year old anymore with a liver made of steel. So I drink my butt off on New Years so the next morning I can remind myself why I shouldn't do it for the rest of the year.
Works for about 3 days... Much like the ready of my New Years resolutions...
Me and my husband both agree. We stopped drinking a long time ago. I don't even bother to stay up anymore.
On that part I agree. I do however think that it is good for a "stopping point" to look back and reflect on decisions and events past, and seek to make better choices when needed for the upcoming year.
That's the problem though. People tend to assume that New Year = excessive drinking. The New Year part isn't the problem but society's limited ability to celebrate it is.
I think it gets old to a point. Sadly people would rather follow the masses (in excessive drinking) than to take the risk in doing something different.
I hate turning on the news to so many stories of people dying because of drinking and driving
Where i love they make a point of it on.new years. Its nothing to hear of five or ten deaths on new years but maybe one in a week the rest of the year. Same with independence day
