Go you celebrate NYE? DH and I used to, and we actually got engaged on NYE do it's a bit special, but we don't do anything now since I was UTD with DS1. Nada. Zip. We don't even pretend to care or stay up late or anything. I think once we had a bottle of sparkling but were still asleep by midnight.
I remember having huge NYEs, and my family used to have huge parties that went on until like, 3am when I was growing up. Not sure if DH and I are just boring or if a lot of people just don't care about it.

In our workplace (which runs 24/7) those with kids usually swap with someone younger so they work Christmas and us older folk will do the NY day shift lol.

New Year's Eve
We rarely do anything. Since having kids we just treat it as any other night. Staying up till midnight then getting up early when the kids wake up isn't worth it.
Last year we had FIL visiting from interstate over Christmas/New Years and he offered to look after the kids so df and I could go out, we ended up going to the casino then watching the fireworks which was fun.
This year I'll be 35 weeks pregnant so we'll probably get a block of chocolate, watch a movie and be asleep by 10pm 😊

NYE is still a thing?? Hehehe. Have not done anything for years (even pre DS!). I was thinking of doing something next year... just a 'do' at home...
This year I will be visiting my home town to see the family. We will go to family fireworks and halg out with friends/family that will be around.

Last year we had extended family up so took the kids to the beach, plenty of food and drink, music etc and set up picnic blankets and chairs late afternoon. We stayed on the beach to watch the 'early' fireworks at 9pm. It was great except the gridlock traffic on the way home (took 1.5 hrs to drive 1km). DS was covered from head to toe in sand and fell asleep in the car and we couldn't wake him to shower once we got home 😂.
This year DH has declared we are NOT doing that again lol. So just going to a friends place for a bbq. Will probably be in bed by 10 😝

NYE pre-kids was always a highlight of my social calendar, buying a new frock, hair/make-up and booking into a fancy soiree somewhere.
Post kids, I sit on the lounge in my Pj's, DH has usually already gone to bed and I watch the Sydney fireworks on tv. I haven't even thought about this year's yet, so yep, not really a big deal anymore, but I live in hope!

We've always done something. Pre kids it was dinner/dancing/New clothes etc home around 4-5am.
Post kids its dinner/dancing/etc at a function centre that caters to families and home by 1-2am.
This year we have no family and no friends in Canberra. So possibly just fireworks then home.

Since having kids the new year celebrations have ceased for me. I think it's more because I would much rather sleep than be up at all hours.
