    Well I supposed to go to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil but my friends can't afford it. We decided to spend it here in LA at Hollywood Palladiuicon_biggrin.gifm called "Masterbeat". I hope it will be fun.

    One of my best friends is in Rio right now. He's staying for a month. Wanted to go down to Toronto or NYC for NYE. I'd prefer to travel with friends though. I hear Mexico or Hawaii would be incredible for NYE.

    Last year i spent it with one of my best friends. But this year I'm most likely going to do the family thing for three reasons. One it's going to be my last year here in EP. Two friend and I have been butting heads a lot lately. Three I don't want to spend it with any of my other friends.

    So I'll probably spend part of it on here up until close to midnight then about 1215 or some time after I'll be back on.

    For the past two years my boyfriend and I've spent NYE at his mom's house. We arrive around 10. Eat. Watch some TV. Ten minutes before midnight we turn off the TV and sit in a circle to do the rosary. And pray through the new year.

    Then we go home. I respect my boyfriend's religion a lot even if I'm no Catholic, but it kills me a little.

    Alone in China. Saying that, i'm sure the Rugby team will do something, or some students here who, like me- can't afford to go home. fingers crossed anyway!

    So bizarre it's actually kind of cool.

    I'll be In Santa Fe NM where last NYE it was minus 4 degrees. Maybe staying in with the rosary would be better.

    My NYE habit is the same as your boyfriend's - usually at my Mammy's home. This year it will be at my home in Buffalo and the prayers will be a combination from my Buddhist practice and my Mammy's Catholic faith. I'll most likely head to Toronto to a dance party at 1.00am New Year's Day. Whatever a person's religion, I believe starting the new year with prayer and at home are good things.

    I'm glad this question got posted when it did - I'm just starting to think about NYE, and I've just realized that I've done the exact same thing (with minor variations) for about 5 years now....leave Steamboat on the 31st, drive in some of the worst weather imaginable across two passes (on 9500 feet, one 11000 feet) to get to Denver, get checked into the Hampton Inn downtown at the last minute, get dressed, find a taxi, which takes us to the same club (Tracks) where we listen to the same music, watch the same people get bombed out of their minds, leave the club at two, cant find a taxi, walk in the freezing weather (which we don't mind, because we too are bombed) to get lost finding our hotel, which we finally do find, to crash out, and sleep most of New Years Day away, wondering why we did that....again.

    So yeah, my NYE is definitely in need of an enema or something. Cant really afford to fly anywhere, so we'll (there's 3 of us in the Steamboat>Denver homo-posse) probably still wind up going to Denver, but dang, there's gotta be something else to do, that also allows us to be with 'family'.

    I'm open to suggestions!

    Every year, my uncle and aunt are hosting the New Year's Eve with the whole family, and it's been like that for all my life.

    Last year, my uncle had an heart attack 5 days before the New Year's Eve, so they obviously had to cancel and there was no family get-together.

    This year, my uncle got well, he's all healthy again (even more healthy, they have a new diet and stuff) and they're hosting the family reunion (I should say party, actually) again.

    It's gonna be pretty much special also, since it's the first time I'm gonna see them since I came out. Gonna be interesting... icon_rolleyes.gif

    Good luck with that, hopefully all will be great, nice way to start a new year!

    Haven't even thought about this year yet, but I've had some great New Year's in the past, some at large gatherings, some smaller get togethers and some at home by choice. I've had a few with my bf, many without, just because of timing and the fact he lives in another city. I can say, I've never started a new year bombed out of my mind. I like the new year to start off on the right foot, so to speak!

    My bf and I will be in Palm Springs. Not sure where, but most likely we will be following our NYE tradition of arriving somewhere about 11 for a couple drinks, ringing in the New Years with a kiss and champagne and then back home not too soon after midnight.

    I will be working, If I'm not working on Christmas I work New Years. I don't drink anyway. My first bf used to say that what ever your doing at midnight is what you'll be doing all year, so we were usually in bed f*cking by midnight....LOL. but it didn't really work....

    It isn't even Thanksgiving yet, guys! Why the rush?

    I'll try to get to sleep because I have to work on the first of January.

    At a friends place with lots of champagne (which I don't drink, but there will be alternatives). Then, after we re-create WW2 with our fire works, we go into Amsterdam and party till dawn.
