New Year’s plans anyone?

So how do other people ring in the New Year?

New Year’s has never been a favorite day for me – there is such pressure to be with someone… and for us single folks, the exclusion is tantamount. What do you do if you don’t have a partner?

Be with people you love, be with friends. Which in itself is wonderful, but when it comes to midnight, the ringing of the bell, its always who you’re with, who you kiss – and there is still a tangible feeling of exclusion.

So – what do you for New Year’s Eve?

This year, I’m debating staying in, on my own, in my home with my cat. Cooking a nice meal for myself, getting a bottle of wine or champagne, and renting some good movies. Having a bubble bath and making a night of it.

After all, we’re all really alone, aren’t we?

Why the pressure? Why put that pressure on ourselves to have the “perfect moment” at midnight?

Thoughts? What do other people do at New Year’s?
