Never been big into New Years. I do most of my partying around Christmas time.. and when New Years comes around I've had my fill. I wouldn't mind hanging out with a few friends or something, but most are going to big parties or whatever. If they moved New Years a couple of months I'd probably do something, but at it's present date it's just to close to Christmas, and Christmas comes first so it gets all my party budget!

Last year I was working on something in my basement, heard fireworks and thought "I should probably go watch them or something.." but then I said "nah" and went back to what I was doing (and then had a "yup, I'm a geek!" moment). :>

This year I'll probably be watching ponies!

DISCOVERY CHANNEL (3, Informative)

Has discovery improved at all?

This isn't a troll but a legitimate question. I used to love discovery, but they were going all reality TV about when I cut the cable. They also had a tendancy to play the same lineup all week which drove me crazy (I get that I can't have new content every day, but at least give me variety in the reruns!).

Been thinking about getting cable again as it comes really cheap with an fibre internet bundle I'm looking at and I miss the whole "just watch whatever is on" experience.

Today's Devil's Panties [thedevilspanties.com] said it best I think.

Re:A day to relax (2)

Anonymous Coward | about 2 years ago | (#42438385)

Yup, that's it. I've been doing it for decades. I can drink like a fish when the occasion calls for it, for many years now, but I've been drinking Hot Chocolate for a couple of decades longer.
    Also, I wax and polish the living room floor, in my jammies. It's a once a year thing, and it's done when I can do a full slide across without picking up a splinter. The first couple of days after confuses the hell out of the cat. (One year I was a little too enthusiastic, and ended up with my right knee going through the plaster on the wall. My aim has improved since then.)

Me too. It's a tradition in my immediate family not to travel during the Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year. Those are dangerous times to be on the road, and you don't want your holiday memories to be of sitting in the emergency room or dealing with a death in the family. (Been there, did that, never again.) We take time off in January to see close relatives and May to see the ones that are further away.

I find it funny that Minecraft is mentioned, and even more so that this will be my second new year in game.

I have a decently elaborate "dropping ball" counter made with redpower and computercraft mods, with a new addition of fireworks for this year. We plan to set it off four times tonight, once for each of the US time zones.

Slightly better than being stuck outside in the cold and snow, especially seeing the majority of us do not have the opportunity to spend new years with family.

I call it "Monday Night" (5, Interesting)

RyoShin (610051) | about 2 years ago | (#42437973)

Today is Monday, tomorrow is Tuesday. Tonight marks one complete rotation (roughly) of our planet around our sun.

I have no idea what my community is doing, but I plan to treat it as any other night, with the exception that I get tomorrow off. As I've grown older (27, for reference) and gotten out and lived on my own I find that annual celebrations hold little meaning to me, including my own birthday. If I'm going to celebrate, it's going to be for a relevant, contemporary event. If I'm going to make changes to my life, it's going to be when I realize those changes need to be made, not some arbitrary date. If I want to get together with loved ones, I'll do it when the urge strikes (at least, in so far as those I want to spend time with are also available.)

(Of course, I've no friends, no close relatives, and am anti-social, so my view could be skewed.)

Anonymous Coward | about 2 years ago | (#42438013)

I personally usually don't celebrate new years anymore. i used to host parties, but I got tired of babysitting drunks and making sure people got home safe, etc. Sometimes I'll consider the past year and look at ways to improve myself or my situation. Sort of a introspection which may or may not result in a resolution.

My neighbours do this cool thing which I think is Austrian in nature. They sweep their house with a broom to symbolically sweep away the past. Then they go outside and, if i understand correctly, throw coins at the house to symbolize desired prosperity. They also walk around the block to symbolize travel/vacations they wish to take. Then they set off small fireworks. I think it's a lovely tradition which includes the family and does not involve getting falling down drunk.

New Year's Eve Tradition? (1)

chronokitsune3233 (2170390) | about 2 years ago | (#42438037)

Well, the local pubs always have specials. Other than that, nothing traditional happens in my area except maybe people watching the Times Square Ball drop in New York City. Of course, that signals New Year's Day in NYC. It's 5 in the morning in London and 11 P.M. (2300 hours) where I reside. I just don't understand how it's such a big celebration if it means that it's New Year's Day happens at midnight in only one timezone. Yet another reason why we should have a world clock instead of time zones and Daylight Saving Time/Summer Time.

I prefer to end the year and same way I start it, stoned off my ass.

I can watch the Space Needle's firework show from my window, so I don't even have to go outside.

Go outside, in the cold and probably rain (this is seattle), to be harassed by panhandlers, cops, drunk fools, more panhandles, then to have to crank my head up to watch 10 mins of fireworks, only to have to deal with more panhandlers, cops, drunk fools, high fools, and traffic.

I could go to a party, but on the way there, have to deal with panhandlers, probably cops, drunk fools, high fools and then once I get to the party, I'm dealing with drunk fools. Then once the cops show up, i'm back outside dealing with the panhandlers, more cops and of course, drunk fools.

I could go to a bar, but i'm sure you get the picture.

In case you didn't notice, drunk people tend to bother me.

While griping about the noisy fireworks and praying no idiots get any in their eyes and I get called in to do something about it.

My recent tradition has been to spend this time debating whether or not I should go to one of the New Year's Eve parties I've been invited to (okay, okay, I only ever get invited to one). Usually I get distracted by the Internet along the way and promptly forget that it's New Year's Eve until the next day when people ask me what I did for it.

This year though, I'll definitely go to the party. Just as soon as I get done reading through and commenting on Slashdot, of course. And then my RSS feeds.

There's been perhaps a hundred boring days this year, so one more won't kill me. So I just let them drag me and fake it like a bored whore giving a freebie.

Same as the other 364 days/year... (1)

I live in Las Vegas, and friends always assume that because I live in SinCity, I must be a party-animal... Nothing could be further from the truth.. My partying days are LONG past (62 y/o), so the wife and I hit the sack about the same time we do the rest of the year, namely 10pm-ish.. Frankly, you couldn't pay me enough to go down to the "Resort Corridor" (what the local newsmedia calls the "Las Vegas Strip") on NYE... And you can only watch that stupid glass ball drop on TV so many times before its "been there.. seen that.." It's 6:30pm here in the Pacific timezone, so there's only about 5 1/2 hours left of 2012... WHERE THE HELL DID IT GO????

Server room hearing loss. My wife is up dancing with her girl friends and I have mooved out into the reception area of the ballroom to read Slashdot. Best new year event ever!
