I used to shun New Year. I’d sulk massively, rebelling against the pressure to have An Amazing Time In Public.
I objected to the inflated prices of pubs and clubs, and objected more to the obnoxiously drunken fools I’d inevitably encounter.
So I started a tradition of wearing pyjamas and being a misery bear on New Year’s Eve.
These days, though, we play Dungeons & Dragons with our nerdmates, and eat a feast, and laugh a lot, and that’s much more fun!
What do you do? What are you doing this year?
Write it all out and tell the story behind your New Year traditions—or perhaps there’s a memorable New Year party that springs to mind…
Set your timer for 5 minutes and enjoy this time for you and your creativity.
