It is Thursday, December 31, 2015 – where are you celebrating?
I usually do not celebrate New Year’s Eve by going out or even staying up till midnight. Call me a party pooper or just old, but I have been there and done that when it comes to bringing in the New Year. Today will be the usual in that I will be in bed asleep when the New Year arrives.
Maybe I will do something next year!

From timeanddate.com ‘New Year’s Eve’ –
New Year’s Eve is one of the largest global celebrations because it marks the last day of the year in the Gregorian calendar, December 31, before the New Year. Count down to the New Year no matter where you are in the world.
Out in the internet world, there is a great deal of good information about New Year’s Eve celebrations, why we celebrate and how we celebrate – where are you celebrating?
From axs.com ‘Top 5 greatest songs to play on New Year’s Eve’ –
A great New Year’s song touches upon the old with a hopeful eye to the new and it tends to be a little more introspective than celebratory. There’s a very delicate balance, an emotional alchemy that happens within a great New Year’s song. Typically, the music for this holiday doesn’t tend to be culled from hit singles, more often it is mined from the deeper cuts of an album. Following, AXS has chosen five truly great New Year’s songs that miraculously capture the sentiment of the season.
- Tori Amos: “Our New Year”
- Bing Crosby: “Let’s Start the New Year Right”
- Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon Levitt: “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve”
- Barry Manilow: “It’s Just Another New Year’s Eve”
- Dan Fogelberg: “Same Old Lang Syne”
Again, maybe I am just old, but I have to go with Dan Fogelberg’s “Same Old Lang Syne”.
So as the day proceeds and the night draws near, I will celebrate from home – where are you celebrating?
I will celebrate from home, well before midnight by raising a glass and making a toast to you – “A toast to you, my hope is you have a wonderful New Year my friends.”
