    Are you able to actually stay up to midnight on New Year's Eve?

    I know I am not speaking to the younger ones, but I know a couple of years my husband and I have had to celebrate New Year's on NY time which is an hour ahead of us ...hehehe ...So have you ever not made it to midnight on New Year's Eve?

    Ok so what year are you asking about?  Hee hee   Because there were SOME years when yes I did. If I was not out at a party, my family and I would go out and bang pots and pans to hoot in the new year or shoot off fireworks.
    In the last five years, I have pretty much been sawing logs at midnight and welcomed it in the next morning.....O, dear, I guess I am not 12 any longer

      Lol ...yes...talking about most recent years! Now, back in the day I could stay up until 3:00 a.m. and still get up and go to work.  What am I talking about...if I can stay up late working on HP stuff, I should be able to...

    It depends on whether or not there's anything good to watch on TV before midnight. If I get into a good movie or football game, I can stay awake long enough to turn the channel to the NYC ball drop.

    I found a very easy solution to this...

    Play Monopoly.

    A game with three or more people can last a few hours or more wink

    Nope... 3 minutes to noon I've got my pots & pans singing in the front yard and by the stroke of twelve I'm ready to nap... My neighbor always yells... 'It's not until tonight YOU IDIOT!!!' but I think he's talking about Santa claus

    I have never missed the midnight celebration on New Year's Eve. Most of the time I'm asleep by 1:00, but it's always fun to ring in the year smile

    I do it every year.  We have a church service where we pray the old year out and the new year in.  We have preaching, prayer, music and a dinner before midnight.
