I always stay in on new years eve. I spend it with the family as we usually watch tv and play games so its great and then we watch the big ben countdown on BBC before watching the fireworks, turning over the calenders and go to bed. It's the way its always been so it'll be strange if something else happens really.

I used to stay in for it most years but spent it at my cousin's house last year, that was good.
I'm going out in Birmingham this year, never been there for New Year's before. I'm not really sure I want to go because I'd prefer a house party or something, but I guess it's worth a go at least once.

I find it's a very overrated night. Saying that, I'd quite like to do it this year as it will be my first New Years Eve away from home.
I still remember the New Years Eve a few years ago though... me and some friends were having a really fun time at my mates house when suddenly, around 11pm, someone had the idea to go to the pub for the countdown to midnight.
When we got there it was absolutely rammed and we barely managed to get served, and neither were we able to enjoy ourselves as we couldn't hear each other speak.
So yeah, so far so dull, we were standing around like sardines for what felt like forever when suddenly we heard the bell for last orders. I looked at my watch, wondering if it was actually a bell to signal the countdown to midnight...
I guess it can only go up from that!
