    I can never seem to have any appetite for eating on New Year's Eve. Anyone else have that problem?

    Not really, New Year's Eve is filled with wonderful finger food, of course some are better than others, and if you have a ticket to dinner and dance, you will probably have something great on the plate.  The only reason I can think of, for not having an appetite is anticipation of a great champagne at midnight.  Also if you drink when you are eating it tends to fill you quicker and you will loose your appetite, so don't drink and eat.  Eat first, then enjoy your drink whether it is alcoholic or non doesn't matter, enjoy the evening.

    Not me!  It's New Year's eve and I'm home with my kids and we are eating finger foods and chips like crazy.  Did you mean a real dinner?  Nah, we eat fun foods like shrimp cocktail and honey garlic wings. 

    Happy New Year!!!

    Sometimes. Maybe you are anxious.  Sorry to hear about that.

    I never have a problem eating...unfortunately:(  I am on the constant proverbial diet.  Having said that, by the time one gets through stuffing oneself for Thanksgiving, and then Christmas, you start getting tired of too much junk food and start longing to get back to a bit of healthy eating.

    Yes! I do. But seeing as I never have much of a problem with my appetite, I put it down to sheer excitement of the night. Be it fireworks, friends and family or a night in the glad rags on the tiles. Food is the last thing on my mind. Too much else is going on! and lets face it, once a year we say goodbye to the old and welcome in the new. We can eat any time:)   
    Happy new year...

    Try yourself to starve a bit - say 12-24 hours. That would perhaps increase your chances of resuscitating your appetite.

    Hey, thanks for the answers everyone. I appreciate the insight.
    I specifically enjoyed Smelloftruth's answer. I shall starve myself on the 30th of December this year so I can have an appetite for the 31st. lol
    I think Gabriel and Pachuca are right though, the anticipation makes me anxious. It always happens on days I go away on trips too. Not sure how to get past the anxiousness ... ohh well, I survived lol. Thanks again for the answers.
