There’s no other celebration as grand as New Year. It is the time when people from all over the globe bid ‘adios’ to the present and greet ‘hola’ to the next. It symbolizes transition from old to new and fresh start. Since all of us are joyfully anticipating the arrival of a New Year, might as well try a new way of celebrating it, far from the traditional house party in the evening, although sending New year wishes to family and friends shouldn’t be forgotten Doing this might really make you feel like having a fresh start. So here are my suggestions on how you can celebrate this grand festivity.
Celebrating New Year with Nature
At least two weeks before New Year, book a flight, if living overseas, and make an arrangement to rent a cabin in the woods where you can rest and warm yourself in a cold night beside a chimney. It’s always better if you make a longer preparation for this to give yourself an ample time to look for a place and avoid the holiday rush. Nevertheless, a spontaneous thought of going outdoors would mean fun and adventure, so it could be an exciting idea for us all. Prepare your New Year’s party dinner, which include a hot creamy noodle soup and some hot beverage like brewed coffee. Cover yourself all over, using a thick warm blanket and enjoy the night.
This is best when done with your partner, because the whole ambiance is tremendously romantic. At the strike of 12 midnight, you can toast with your mug of hot chocolate.
Another unique way of celebrating your new year is to go out of town and go camping. It will be fun to bring your friends along and watch city lights below. A little preparation is required though, consider your transportation, how can you get there and where are you going to rest. Of course, do not forget to bring your tent because the idea here is to go camping. Find a good camping spot as part of the preparation.
If you and your friends are hungry for some adventure, going on the camping site by means of commuting and walking would be fun.
Celebrating New Year in the Beach
Some people do spend their holidays on the beach and you might be wondering whether it’s really a great idea. If so, why don’t you try it yourself? During nighttime, the wind by the sea gets refreshingly cold, it could inspire you having a solemn, peaceful and quiet celebration and reflection for the New Year away from the busy city life. Do a little research and you might just find a deserted beach where you can just sit and watch the waves crash into the shore. It is best done by couples as it is very relaxing and extremely romantic.
Celebrating New Year at Home
Some people just can’t leave the comfort of their home and would not exchange this idea for some holiday in outdoors. If they are, just let them be and have the most out of the holidays by making your New Year’s celebration fun and enjoyable. You can play games or rent movies aside from the usual New Year’s dinner. The perks of celebrating it in this fashion is that it wouldn’t cost that much. Last year, I spent this holiday with my family. After I send out my New Year messages and greetings through cards and via email, I joined the family as they watch different fireworks in the sky.
Spending New Year in a Spa
Remove your stresses by spending your New Year in a luxurious spa for some massage. You can definitely find a spa that is open during New Year. Make an advanced reservation for you and your loved one, give them this wonderful treat so that they can welcome the New Year relaxed and stress-free.
To make sure that your New Year will be hassle-free, make sure that the personnel doing the massage will be of the same gender. Letting your partner see a lady masseuse doing your massage would surely spell a problem.
Have your own Firework Displays
Prepare your own fireworks display at the backyard and make this a highlight of your New Year celebration. However, take extra care in handling and arrangement of new year decorations and supplies, as they as highly flammable and are made of substances that can harm one’s health when ingested. Invite your loved ones at the backyard before the strike of midnight; give them their glasses of champagne as everyone do the countdown. Light them at the strike of 12 midnight and watch them with your family, friends and loved ones.
