Most of us by now know how and where we are going to spend this New Year’s Eve. With the fear of the virus still going strong, it would be wisest to spend a cozy New Year’s Eve at home with family and selected friends. Prepare a meal together with your family, put on comfortable pajamas and have a slumber party in the living room while watching a movie or web series. You could decorate your room together for the new year and wait for the midnight while you play classic board games or the tech console games with your folks. You could plan a potluck dinner with close buddies, play games and drink and dance away your blues to ring in the new year!
Even if you are all by yourself, you could still make this eve enjoyable and memorable. Go ahead and plan a virtual celebration with your loved ones. Eat, play and toast to a virtual midnight countdown with your family and friends. To take the celebrations a notch higher, arrange a neighborhood countdown to the New Year. People living next doors in your community can stand in their balconies or in their front porch and you could all cheer together at midnight.
This year, all the iconic New Year’s Eve celebrations are going virtual too, which isn’t surprising at all. You could just laze around and watch a livestreamed firework display, concert, major night events, or other New Year’s broadcast from your home. Be it the popular Times Square New Year’s Eve ball drop or the street parties at Madrid Square or the lighted skies over Big Ben or the famous fireworks at Rio De Janeiro…. everything is going digital this year!
Whatever you chose to do this New Year’s Eve, do it with the faith that the coming year will bring new hopes and ways for a better brighter life and the world will see the light soon. Remember, things are not going to change immediately after midnight once the new year rings in. I would say, be forbearing and patient like you have been all through this remarkable year 2020 and just hang in there with resilience and positivity.
I leave you with this assurance and aspiration and I am sure you will have a blast in bidding this historic year a memorable goodbye!
Stay safe and stay healthy!
