We will be staying at home this year, as we do every year. Our son has a party every year with his friends. He always has about 4 or 5 friends come over and spend the night.
We have always encouraged it and will continue to. We also will have a few friends over to play some board games and just to hang out. The cost of New Years Eve and how so many things increase inf price during that at ime, is not necessary and we do not believe that we should have to fall for the commercial 'in your face' pricing.
I know it sounds negative, but I also feel very safe at home on New Years Eve and if anyone decides that they have had too much to drink or if they just don't want to fight traffic, we have extra beds and air matresses.
