New Year’s is fantastic in Rome…concerts, parades, Christmas markets,great food & wine!
Home. For us, New Years is about taking time to reflect on what we are grateful for. It is also a time to examine what we have accomplished over the last year and plan for the following year.
We both agree that New Years is one of those things and almost never lives up to the expectation. We have had a couple of New Years celebrations that unfolded organically and, thus, where very memorable, but we avoid planning for a big celebration.
Well that’s boring! :) We always rent a house with several other couples and spend the weekend making lavish meals and playing board games. Now there are a lot of little ones thrown into the mix, but it’s still a lot of fun. Love spending the holiday this way much more than with thousands of strangers.
We’re going to have to go with home as well…. “home” for us is wherever we have to be that year..as wildlife field biologists that often means the middle of nowhere in a tent or on a plane ride home from seeing family over the holidays. However this year, we are excited to be “home” with family and will enjoy a small gathering of friends, and like the NRV guys above – we avoid the big celebration but maybe something will unfold!
Best place to celebrate NYE is Sydney – two fireworks displays (one probably the world’s most famous), it’s warm, and you can go to the beach the next day. Plus Sydney, in my opinion, is the best city in the world
I know this is going to sound super boring to some, but I really like the idea of going up north for New Years. Maybe it’s just knowing there’s crowds of people congregating somewhere else makes the remote areas seem even more remote. I can think of no better symbolism for starting the new year than waking up to freshly fallen snow covering all you can see. With the quiet of the holiday, it’s an amazingly powerful moment of serenty.
Home is where I prefer to spend NYE. It’s amateur night and living in NYC most places cost way too much and offer way too little with food and drinks for it to be worth it.
So I gather a few friends, some quality booze, lots of food and good music. I go out January 1st night for drink specials and less crowded bars.
Oahu, Hawaii. There’s nothing like a day spent at the beach (especially if you’re used to a bone-chilling NYE) to start the year off right!
