I Be Ringin' in the New Year with a Vengence

Last Update: December 23, 2015

I am not a big "out on the town" celebratory person when it comes to New Year's Eve; especially if it is really cold out. I live in the central mid-western state of Kansas and it can be rather blustery here. Contrary to what might be popular belief though, it's not flat and full of tumbleweeds here. I live less than an hour from Kansas City and there are some really great places to celebrate Christmas and ring in the New Year.

My husband and I however, decided many years ago, when our children were young, that life is too precious to be cut short by amateurs. We celebrate at home with friends. We avoid the drunk drivers, the road blocks and check points, and we don't have to fight the crowds at any given club.



Instead of planning out where we will go and how much we will spend on New Year's Eve, I get to plot my revenge on last year. That's right, from Christmas til the new year, I am thinking about what didn't go so well last year and what I plan to do differently this next year.

Now don't get me wrong, I don't get all down on myself and depressed. I basically just shift to a higher gear. OK, so I'm like, innnn...., gear 35 now. LOL

But seriously, what do you plan for the new year. Do you make resolutions, those things you break 10 hours into the New Year? Do you make a list and check it off throughout the year? Do you set goals, dream big or contemplate the depth of each new decision in your future? Do you plan on approaching this New Year any differently since becoming a Wealth Affiliate?

I'm just curious, how will you be ringing in the New Year?


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

To One and All,

That sounds wonderful what you have planned....Over here in Dubai it is a chilly 19-22 C lol...For this place it is chilly, but of course in Germany where I spend most Christmases it would be a heat wave (even in summer lots of times!)! Cheers and enjoy!!! Dave : )

Oh wow, yeah, you can keep that. We used to go to the Niagara Falls every year in winter (lived in Buffalo) when I was young. I've had my fill of drastic weather. LOL

Happy Holidays to you.

Hi Missa, like you we avoid the hassle of attending external private functions, which are normally good, but rather spend time at home with family and friends to celebrate the new year in comfort.

Actually I celebrate 4 times in a year 'the new year': the western counting, the Hebrew counting (year 5775 now), the new year of the trees (in spring) and the scriptural new year (in autumn)
