    Do you have someone to kiss at midnight tonight, New Year's Eve?

    In the United States, it is a custom here to kiss someone at midnight and wish them a "Happy New Year" and so do you have someone to kiss at midnight to bring in the New Year?  If you are not from the U.S., what are some of your customs on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day?  Thank you for answering and have a Happy New Year. XXXX

    My two kids and I stay up to watch the ball drop in New York City and at midnight, we all give each other a kiss and a big group hug. Even when we were first married, my husband never wanted to stay up. So I just enjoy the moment with the two most precious kids in the world!

    Yes, but I better not. I'm recovering from the flu and I don't think he'd be very appreciative of my sharing that smile.  He's been taking such great care of me though I wish I could give him a big kiss to show my appreciation.  Maybe in a few days lol.

    You might find this sad and/or gross, but I have my cat. No - not that kind of kiss. Just a kiss on his head. Hey why not? For this year he's the only part of my family that will be at my house.

      The world becomes a darker and colder place when we can't take the time for the kitties. I love them too.

    No, but I wish I did. I've never really been into the partying on New Year's Eve; but having someone to kiss at midnight is something I would really like, at least once.

      Hi LasrRoseofSummer, yes, having someone to kiss at midnight is nice and that partying is not all that great really, but having someone special in your life is wonderful.

    Yes Faith, just my wife and I this year. It is also a custom here in Australia to kiss people, but goes one further, New Year is renowned for Kiss A Cop. Everyone goes for the closest police officer and kisses them. The only time of year you could get away with it.
