I went to bed around 3:30AM on news years holiday. I could not stay awake any much longer since I was too tired and been hanging around with family.

Yes I always make sure that I'm awake to ring in the New Year.

I never stay awake because I am usually doing something else.

I went to church and brought in the new year with the church family.  We always get out by 12:30 before the bars close and all the crazies and drunks get on the road.  This year was great no gunshots in my area and I was in bed by 1.

Last night, I fell asleep. My phone rang just after midnight and I could hear fireworks outside. So, I did not see the ball drop.

We used to celebrate it, but it appears to be just another excuse for everyone to go out and get drunk. Not interested in that and not interested in trying to dodge all the drunks out driving after celebrating.

The new year comes in anyway. We stayed up to watch a movie and said "Happy New Year" to each other at midnight.  :party: Just as good. Right?

Stayed at home!  Cooking peas for "good luck" and cabbage for "money" leading right up to midnight central time.  I like to watch the NYC Times Square ball drop, but had to see replay.  Dallas has joined the big cities by sending off fireworks on Reunion Tower (aka "The Ball" for those of you who may remember the opening sequence to the series "Dallas").

I usually am up until after midnight anyway so New Years was no different but my husband decided to go to bed at 11:40.  I was like really you cannot wait 20 more minutes.

My son and I stayed awake. We like to see the moment the New Year comes in, make goals for the upcoming year, and discuss the goals we made the previous years, did we reach them or not?. He is 12 years old and I think this really helps him make and achieve goals in life :party:  :heart:

I do like to stay up for New Years. I always have. It just doesn't seem like New Years to me if I don't stay up until Midnight.

It's been years since I've stayed up until midnight to bring in the new year.  Last night I was in bed by 10:00!
