Julia December 23rd, 2011 Setting off fireworks! Illegal or legal. Dave December 23rd, 2011 We usually try to have “Orphan” New Year with our friends. So many of us are pretty far removed from our family (Chapel Hill and New Orleans respectively for me and my wife) that there are usually a good number of us around. We’ve made it a tradition to get together for a huge potluck that is representative of our various culinary backgrounds. We stuff ourselves silly with great food, let the spirits flow freely, dance and then all kiss and hug once the clock strikes midnight. It’s not the most original celebration, but it’s the most earnest and heartfelt. Wan Hang December 23rd, 2011 struggle to stay awake and try to send sms to friends right before the new year. Jenny December 22nd, 2011 Before marriage and children I would go to parties with my friends. At one, we would watch the ball drop and then run as fast as we could to the finish line of the midnite road runners race in Central Park. I miss those days. Catherine December 22nd, 2011 My favorite is to have some one special to kiss at midnight! Steven Rossi December 22nd, 2011 Dinner and drinks at the local Astoria bars. Kat4a December 22nd, 2011 I enjoy New Years Day, which we spend on the couch watching movies, playing board games, and eating leftover christmas candy (if we can find any!) Krista December 22nd, 2011 My favorite New Year’s Eve tradition is cooking a fancy dinner at home. Andrew December 22nd, 2011 My favorite way to celebrate the New Year is to spend it with my friends and family. This will be my first New Year’s in Astoria, so I invited friends whom I haven’t seen in quite some time to drink and party with me in my new dwelling! Bella December 22nd, 2011 partying with friends and having a sleepover afterward! Carrie December 22nd, 2011 Snuggling my man Daniel Rios December 22nd, 2011 We try to stay up every year, but end up crashing around 11:45 and waking up at 1. Woo hoo. Martha December 21st, 2011 Before moving to the states, we used to watch fireworks on the rooftop of the apartment building. Now, we have big family gathering at home, have hot pot and stay warm inside. Laura K. December 21st, 2011 We always bang pots together and throw pennies in the street! Jhani December 21st, 2011 As long as I’m in a sparkly top, have a glass of champagne in my hand, and am surrounded by my favorite people, I would be happy anywhere! Aryn December 21st, 2011 Cook dinner and have a quiet night in with my family! NYCBird December 21st, 2011 Singing ‘Auld Lang Syne’ at the top of our lungs and mumbling through the words we don’t know, which is most of it. Nora December 21st, 2011 Watching the Ball Drop on TV! Jared December 21st, 2011 For the best few years it’s been playing Rock Band at a friend’s party. This year will be a *dance* party. Yes, in a NY apartment. Go figure. Also: I’ll be heavily armed just in case 2011 decides to stick around. Allison December 21st, 2011 I like to jump into the ocean at midnight Alex December 21st, 2011 Sitting at home or at a party wondering why so many people stay out in the cold to see a ball drop Erin S December 21st, 2011 I’m embarrassed to say that I have the tradition of falling asleep on the couch on New Year’s eve Jen Makulowich December 21st, 2011 Growing up, I couldn’t wait to see the ball drop on TV and go out on my deck in Jersey and bang trash cans and spin noisemakers! I’ve grown up a little, and now just watch the ball drop and pop champagne, but I know once I have children we’ll all be making noise in celebration of the new year! Comments are closed.
