    Nope, just smaller house parties. The last two years Fiance and I have hosted. This year we aren’t and we’re going somewhere. I would honestly love to just STAY IN, but he wants to go. lol.

    New Years is a huge deal in Vegas, so yes. Not really a huge deal for me, though.

    Never seems like much of anything here. We usually just stay in.

    Not really. I mean people celebrate it, have parties at their house or go clubbing I suppose. But its not a huge deal or anything here.

    We just always stay home.  We don’t drink, but if we did there are no places to do so in the county being it’s dry…so I figure that may play into things.

    I’m not sure.  I would say a big huge YES for younger people.  When I was younger, it was HUGE!  Now that I’m an old lady, though, I’d say it’s not that big of a deal anymore.  Lots of house parties and quieter evenings in.  I’m sure there are a bunch of 20 year olds having the night of their lives not far from here, but this 30 year old is staying home watching the Team Canada juniors. 🙂

    ETA: ^YAY, they won!

    I’m in Upstate NY and it depends on how old you are I suppose.  The ‘Youngins’ all seem to like to go to Albany or Saratoga to bars or clubs…the older folks (like me) tend to go to a smaller gatherings, house parties or stay home.  This year we went out to dinner with a few of our friends, and came home by 8:30.  Seemed like a good idea at the time, but now it’s 10:30 and I don’t know if I’ll make it until midnight!

    There are a few galas and what not but most people I know just hang out with friends and keep it pretty low key. Darling Husband and I will more than likely be in bed by midnight.

    Its a huge deal in Chicago but not for us. We have never done anything for new years. Its too dangerous to go somewhere. 

    @JennyDawn: I grew up in a dry county! halla! 😀
