I used to think so, but have completely changed my mind. Whether you go out or not should depend entirely on what's going on; the really sad thing (which everyone has probably done at some point) is to force yourself to go somewhere you don't like, just so you can say you went out on New Year's Eve.
In any case, so many pubs and other places have now started having ticket-only admission on December 31, that a lot of town centres have become utterly dreary places on that night. Where it's still the custom for people to wander in and out, having a drink here and there –maybe in fancy dress – and gather round the town hall clock at midnight for Auld Lang Syne: then there's some sense in going out.
If your town doesn't have this kind of atmosphere, and you haven't got a nice party to go to, surely staying at home, maybe with a few friends, is as good as spending the whole evening in one bar or restaurant. The main thing is to remember when it's nearly midnight – nobody likes to miss that.
No not at all. Some people hate the whole thing about New Years eve. Most people only drink too much , get depressed and feel horrid on New Years Day!
In Scotland New Year tends to be rather more fun than in the rest of Britain. In some areas people don't bother first footing and a lot of people go to bed to avoid the whole thing. I fall into that category!
I don't think there's anything wrong with staying at home. Why not wait until 2007 and paln something nice either with a partner or friends or just have a treat ?
NO a lot OF PEOPLE, INCLUDING MY SELF ARE DOING IT. Its too dangerous and your better off just getting soda, champagne, chips, popcorn and doing a little something in the comfort of your own home. No its not sad.
No, I don't think so,as we can enjoy and amuse with some friends or family at home for celebrating it with champagne as well.
