You might be surprised...
New Year’s Eve is creeping up on us QUICK. As the invites for parties and dinners are piling in (you popular thing, you!), you may be finding yourself stressed out about what to do.
You haven’t even decided which dress to rock or what color pallet of eye shadow will make you look the most spectacular either.
The whole idea of a New Year’s celebration has got your mind in a whirlwind but when you step back to evaluate for a moment, you have a realization. What do I ACTUALLY want to do this New Year’s eve?
The holidays come but only once a year so getting what YOU want out of them seems pretty logical right? Everyone is different and the perfect New Year’s eve for one person may NOT be the perfect evening for another.
Our personalities are diverse, and the traits of our zodiac signs are the perfect example to explain what makes each of us tick.
Zodiac signs can say a whole lot about who we are, what makes us happy AND can actually help us make decisions. If you are stressing out about what to do for the upcoming holiday, look no further than your star sign to figure out the best way to ring in the new year!
Check out this list to locate your zodiac sign and find out the perfect place for you to spend the holiday. You may be surprised by the options and even more amazed that you never thought about them before.
Aries ( March 21-April 19): A Home Gym
It’s unlikely that many actual gyms will be open on New Year’s Eve, but if they are, you should head there first. If you or one of your Aries friends has a home gym, this will be the perfect place for you this holiday!
We know how much you love physical challenges and ringing in the new year with your passion for activity will make you feel on top of the world (even though you already feel that way!)
Waiting around for 12 am to make a toast and gorge on food isn’t really your thing since you can often be impatient and moody, so passing the time with a sweaty workout might be ideal. Plus, you won’t have to bother with that dress that always rides up your thighs and those spiky heels that make you want to kill the person who invented them.
We know how much you love wearing comfy clothes and your gym attire is among the comfiest!
Taurus (April 20-May 20): In The Kitchen
You love to work with your hands and cooking is TOTALLY your thing. Squishing some super soft dough between your fingers to make home-made pasta or cookies sounds much better to you than getting hammered at a bar anyway.
You’re a practical kind of lady who wants to start the year honing in your cooking skills while spending the evening on your own terms.
Since you have a bit of a romantic side to you, try inviting over your significant other, or the person you’ve been crushing on to join in. Cook together while listening to some music and sipping on a glass of wine as the year turns.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): At a Random Party
It’s probable that amongst all of your party invitations, there is one that seems a bit random. Maybe it’s that cute co-worker or a friend of a friend; regardless, there are bound to be a bunch of people there that you don’t know.
Since your are super sociable and always ready to have a good time, head to one of these parties and just see what happens. Your quick-witted nature and ability to adapt will make you instantly likable and you will be bound to leave the party with a ton of new friends.
You know a lot about books, music and magazines and since you are so good at talking to people, you will find that conversation about any of these things will come easily.
Cancer (June 21- July 22): In Bed With Your Partner
You’re a bit of a homebody, but there ain’t no shame in that! Since you love being around those that are close to you and connecting on an emotional level, a New Year’s spent in bed with your partner would be heaven.
The haven of your own bed will keep you away from strangers at rowdy parties since we all know that you can be a bit suspicious and insecure around new people. Grab the person you love, a stock pile of snacks and wine and retreat under the covers to start the new year off right.
Leo (July 23-August 22): At Your Own Party
You love to lead and be in control so why attend someone else’s party when you could just have thrown your own?
Honestly, you are so creative and passionate that your party is bound to be more interesting than any of the others out there. And, since you’re hard to resist and totally loveable, all your invites are sure to show.
Since you have a thing for bright colors and expensive taste, make your party as lavish as you want with all of the best French wines and fancy appetizers. Make it an evening that is just as unforgettable as you.
Virgo (August 23-September 22): Lost in a Book
Being surrounded by a ton of people at a New Year’s party really doesn’t work well for you. You’re way too shy for that and your frequent self-criticism may have you worrying about how you look in that dress the whole time instead of enjoying yourself.
Plus, getting wasted on champagne doesn’t seem that practical when you could snuggle up with your cat and learn a thing or two from your promising new read.
You will feel incredible in the morning and can start off the new year getting right to work on your new goals.
Libra (September 21- October 22): At a Potluck With Your Yoga Friends
You hate to be alone since you’re so good at socializing but a wild party just won’t give you the sense of harmony you desire. The thought of standing around a group of drunks who are screaming and getting into fights makes you cringe, so an evening at the bar won’t do either.
Instead, gather up your peaceful and gentle friends from yoga class and organize a potluck. You can ring in the new year with open-minded discussions while eating tasty food and contemplating the future.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21): At The Bar
All of your friends will be heading to the bar this year, including that special someone you’ve been crushing on. You will want to keep an eye on them to make sure they aren’t flirting with anyone else and you also won’t want to miss out on all of the gossip from the evening.
Expressing your emotions after a hefty amount of drinks with your long-time friends will probably be the most rewarding to you. You can dance together, cry together and get ready to party hard when the ball drops.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Party Hopping
You hate to be constrained to one place and you have so many friends that you don’t want to be stuck with the same ones the whole night. In fact, you’ve probably told way too many people that you would attend their party and need to try to deliver your promise.
Since you love your freedom to travel around, hop in a taxi and make your rounds to as many parties as possible.
Your extroverted and energetic personality will help you fit right in to each party you attend and your sense of humor will keep everyone entertained.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19): With Your Family
Whatever they happen to be doing, you will most certainly enjoy being with your family more than anyone else.
Family traditions are hugely important to you and since you are so responsible and self-disciplined, playing chess with your grandpa over getting drunk with friends won’t really be a struggle.
Plus, you’re too stubborn to deal with the frivolous plans of your indecisive friends and worry that you would eventually hate whatever party you ended up at. It just seems way more practical to spend the start of the new year with the people you love.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18): In Another Country
You’re not really into all of the hugging, kissing and emotions that go into New Year’s Eve celebrations. Since you are wildly independent, not willing to compromise and strongly dislike anything that seems boring or dull, going off to another country by yourself might be perfect for you.
It would be a much more progressive idea than the traditional parties and since you have such good social skills, you will be likely to make friends once you get there.
Sit at a hostel bar and have an intellectual conversation with other travelers or pair the trip with a chance to volunteer overseas and make a difference.
Pisces (February 19-March 20): A Concert With Friends
You are pretty obsessed with music as it helps you feel more connected, less lonely and happy. Since you have such emotional connections with your friends, a concert would be a great way for you to experience something meaningful together.
It’s likely that one of your artistic friends is actually in a band, so if they are having a gig, you could go and support them.
Starting off the new year doing something nice for your friends while listening to music would be the perfect combination.
