New Years rituals

I asked several people what they will doing tonight. Here’s what they said:

A: I’m singing at the Hyatt in midtown for their NYE party. 

T: I’ll make happy pancakes for dinner, berries and organic sour cream, topped with a square of dark chocolate. I’ll sing the New Years song. 

K: I don’t believe in New Years. It’s just a numerical event. If anything I would celebrate the solstice, but I don’t really celebrate anything. I celebrate a moment something shifts. 

J: I’m going to party like it’s 1999, because in 1999 I was 12 and I just stayed home and watched movies. I’ll be watching The Sound of Music.

J:  Some good friends of mine just bought a house.. helping them move in and celebrating with them at their house. Then go downtown to see my best friend whose in town from Seattle right now 😊

C: I’m bundled up in bed, with a glass of bubbly and a slice of cheesecake watching Seven Samurai. That’s my New Years!

S: Just finished a delivery and pulled off the road to wish on the North Star. Headed to a friends for a bit. I never like nye 😬 

K: Candlelight service at the place I am staying. They used to run a homeless mission for 15 years in Stockton.  

S: Party at a local pub. Happy New Year!

M: I am going to watch a play tonight and then maybe hang out until the new year!

I: I am at a fancy club in Boston with my parents & friends. 

S: Mellow night. Going to get my beauty sleep soon!

C: Going to a friend’s place with my lover to make dinner and play a game – then might go to a party after 🎉

I’ll be thinking about 2016, the worst year  of my life. Did you know we lost all of these people?
