Every New Years Eve Party EVER

I’ll just come out and say it– I don’t like New Years Eve. This pretty much sums up my feelings for the night:

Look familiar? That’s right, it’s how you’ve spent every New Years Eve since you were able to embibe legally. Though you are pretty much guaranteed to make out with a random stranger.. which the poster fails to mention.

I haven’t seen the celeb orgy that is “New Years Eve” but one line from the previews stuck with me.. pre Ashton Kutcher molesting that Glee girl in the elevator he says, “New Year’s is the worst holiday to go out on. People who don’t drink, don’t party all year, suddenly going all Kanye on you.”

And he’s right. It’s like those people who only go to church on Christmas and Easter. Homebodies feel obligated to go out and ring in a new year with a bunch of strangers packed into a tiny bar like sardines. Because who wouldn’t?!

Now yes, as I’m writing this, I know full well that I will be braving the crowds on New Years Eve somewhere on Northgate.. but it doesn’t change my mind about the whole night.

So, are the crowds and drama just part of what make New Years Eve fun? Or do you prefer a much smaller (but not necessarily quieter) evening with friends?
