There is no other holiday like it.
To celebrate, some people like to get really drunk and party like it's 1999. Some people like to throw things that represent bad memories from the past year into bonfires while dancing around like a heathen.
You'll be happy to know that I don't drink and that I didn't have anything bad memories to burn from the past year. So what did I do? How did I celebrate?
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I'm a gamer. But not in the sense that society associates with people huddled in their basement in front of a computer screen or a gaming console trying to save Middle Earth. I play other games. These games:
|Mille Bornes, Scattergories, Boggle, Taboo, Dominoes, Scrabble, Quiddler, Hearts, and Push the Dummy to name a few.|
Our family has been dubbed Word Nerds because of the wordy nature of the games we love to play.
Another great thing about New Year's Eve is food. Lots of food. And sparkling cider. And playing games until 0330. Did I mention games?
Did you know that if you dance after drinking a glass of sparkling cider, you feel really crappy? You think it would be common sense to not dance when one has a full belly of bubbly goodness, but when there's a strobe light (there's an app for that!) you can't not dance.
So with the games, movies, dancing, games, social interaction, late nights, and games, I wish you all a happy 2012!
