    Default What are you doing for new years eve?

    Now that christmas is finished and I am sitting here bored ... Just wondering what others are doing for nye? Will you be going to see fireworks? Having a party?
    We don't normally do anything but now the kids are 5yo and 3.5 I was thinking of going somewhere local for fireworks or maybe catching up with friends. Not sure.

    What are your plans?

    Thinking we might try to take DD to the fireworks in the new year. She's 3 with sensory processing disorder, doesn't handle crowds well, or noise. But needing to get her desensitised to it I think! Ear muffs and the pram (so she's got her own space) might do the trick!

    We used to go to the foreshore every NYE to have dinner, spend time together reflecting on the previous year and watch the fireworks.

    I am getting some small fireworks for in our yard, ordering pizza and letting the kids go nuts with sparklers. They can stay up until it is dark whereas usually we have a strict 7pm bed time.

    @ tastychicken that sounds like fun.

    I am leaning towards inviting some friends over and getting some glow sticks for the kids. Ordering pizzas sounds great, don't have to worry about cooking.

    We never do anything. We run into yard and watch and fire works that go off.
    No home fireworks here. Growing up my sister friend blow off half his hand (3 fingers and part of the palm) setting off fireworks.
    Not worth the risk plus i think they are still illegal in qld.

    We get the small legal ones like a pin wheel and crackers ect. Not any shooting into the sky ones.

    Nothing. Just another night. Probably packing the house and in bed before midnight.
