Is there a law stating that you have to have a date for New Year's Eve?  I didn’t think so. Is there a law saying you have to kiss someone at midnight? I didn’t think so.  The same crony that invented Sweetest Day coined a kiss on New Year's Eve.  Or at least that’s the story I’m telling. Why do we feel this great pressure to have a date for New Year's Eve?  For marketing purposes most likely. It’s a tradition they say!  To heck with tradition, start your own!

Don’t wait for plans to come your way.  Make the plans now.  Think about your ideal way to ring in the new year.  What’s going to set the tone for the new year?  Have gratitude for the year past and wish prosperity and happiness for the year to come.  You can do it and you can have fun doing it. Get your friends fired up too.  Enthusiasm is contagious.

Think as if you are seated for a tasting from a fabulous chef.  He wants to prepare you duck, three ways.  You can think of New Years Eve like this fancy meal from the greatest chef.  Whichever style of the dish you choose, you know it’s going to be great. 

So, let’s take a look at New Year's Eve, three ways. 

Up in The Club

You're gonna party like it’s New Year's Eve and nothing is stopping you.  Date or no date, you have a table at the hottest club in town. It’s you, your friends and about 500 strangers.  There is no doubt that everyone will be friends by tomorrow. Bottle service. Beautiful people. Dancing all night. You don’t care what happens as long as the beat drops right at midnight.

You don’t feel like going out with all the amateurs tonight.  You and your friends have been there, clubbed that.  However, you still like to party. Here comes all of your great friends over to your sweet house.  Groove Salad is playing on  The food is catered and the drinks are flowing. It’s about 20 people.  Just enough to be a party and small enough to really get to hang. This new years celebration still says party - with kisses for everyone.  You are all great friends.
