    Do you celebrate New Year's Eve or Day?

    I know a lot of people celebrate both and growing up, that was the case with my family.

    Now, we kind of just do our own things. I don't really do anything for either day and I almost feel weird about it because most people do, at least in the US. I will have dinner with my mom on New Year's Eve, we usually get Chinese (my dad works every year).

    I want to get back into the holidays more and actually do something this year but I am not sure what to do. lol

    Do you celebrate New Year's Eve or Day? If so, what do you do?

    I celebrate just like how everyone else celebrates it...drinking.

    Lots of drinking

    ...Seriously, a lot of drinking

    Like, bars would be sold out because of how much I drink.

    I don't really celebrate New Year's Day, but I do celebrate on New Year's Eve and watch the countdown on TV (more like I have it on TV and run over about 1 minute before the ball drops, screw the actual 'content' of that show).

    The content of the whole thing went way downhill since I was a kid. It just sucks now. lol

    When I was growing up, my grandma would come over and since my dad has always worked that day, it would be me, my mom, her, my brother, and sometimes a friend or two of ours. We would just play games and then toast with mint shakes at midnight. Nothing special but I enjoyed it.

    Who wouldn't watch the fireworks at midnight? (If there are any in your area, that is. Otherwise, there's always TV.)

    I just hope the London fireworks this time around aren't some masturbatory tourist magnet. That's probably too much to ask for. I couldn't give a damn about the London Eye. How about a fireworks display outside of that cesspit of a capital city?

    I suppose there's always Edinburgh if I can find a stream. Likely on YouTube.

    There are too many traditions/expectations of what you'll do when the clock strikes midnight. Take a drink, hug a family member, make noise with one of those rattle-crank things, or kiss your SO. Last year I was with my wife but also holding a cold one. Do I slam down my beer or kiss my wife? Or should I make noise?

    Not as far as I know. It's just going outside a few minutes before midnight in my family, then simply watching the fireworks. You really needn't do anything special. It's not like it's a particular holiday anyway.

    I agree, but that's the Western take on things. For my wife, New Year's is like Christmas. In fact, New Year's Eve/Day and Christmas are sort of swapped in Japan. I think we may have talked about it before on the forums but for anyone new to this topic, Christmas is really just a date night for the Japanese. There is relatively less decoration than you see here & there isn't much if any reverence for the holiday. It's a day to crush pussy and drink. Bars/restaurants/stores are all open as usual.

    That being said, they treat New Year's with a creepy level of respect and take roughly one week off work for it. Everything is closed, perhaps a few convenience stores remain open across the entirety of Tokyo. I've had the pleasure of spending 2 New Year's Eves there and it's shockingly quiet. I remember once in Ueno Park I was around approx. 400-500 people and it was dead quiet. Every minute or so, a gong rang out from a distant mountainside, but other than that everyone was silently waiting in line to attend the shrine. My wife and I went to a Chinese peking duck buffet before that and we were the only ones there and they remained open just for us as the last customers. The Chinese take New Year's really seriously too so I felt bad for them. Doesn't their New Year take place at a different time though? That must be why they were open.

    Confirmed earlier, it will be Chinese for New Year's Eve dinner as usual. I actually have a taste for it too.

    All the traditions people makeup or have made can be a bit silly. I know for my mom, we have to say happy new year and hug or she gets mad. lol

    I get drunk and play videogames while calling everyone a cunt over the mic.

And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"
