What’s New Year’s Eve really about?

New Year’s Eve is a magical time of the year. As the year concludes, we look back and reminiscence about the time spent riding on the roller coaster of life. With it, comes new ideologies and hopes for the future. You are allowed the time to remember the year past and focus on what has a possibility of happening in the New Year. These are a few constants that come every New Year, the realization that change is occurring, the need to spend time with family and friends, the need for love and remembrance about what you missed out on and the importance of laughter, fun and enjoyment.


As time advances closer to the future, you are faced with the realization that huge changes are about to occur. These changes are not limited to the shift in the year, but expand to include all the new opportunities that will arise. You may have been offered a promotion or have decided to change your home. You may have been holding back from sending in a job application or taking a step closer to a relationship you are still not sure about.

Now is the time to reevaluate all those major decisions. Time will continue, whether you like it or not, the longer you wait the more alteration will be necessary to effectively live with whatever decision you make. Don’t sit back and watch the seasons change before your eyes. Embrace the change and make necessary adjustments needed to enjoy your life to the fullest.

Family and friends

Organize an outing for a day at the park and spend some time with family members you have not seen in a while. This is a great time of year to let your family know that you really care about them and make up for the time you did not spend together.

Have a family get-together at your house, or wherever the family usually converges. Choose a nightlife venue which admits people of all ages for the New Year’s Eve celebration and get your entire family some tickets. Do something you will all love, while you reconnect with each other and ring in the New Year!

Forget about all the things you dislike and the people you can’t get along with. Release the optimism in you and enjoy the company of others. New Year’s should be a happy time because the chance to make new starts and forget old mistakes is a change that can coincide with a beginning. Love, and allow yourself to bask in the love of others. After all, what is New Year’s Eve without love and happiness?

Laughter and fun

New Year’s is a time to spend enjoying yourself. Meet up with some friends or let your kids stay up late and create wonderful memories. Laugh and have fun. Try to embrace the New Year with fresh possibilities and the chance to make new beginnings. Visit a comedy club, or just have a family gathering where you are all free to tell stories of your own past and enjoy the memories.
