THEY don't have any planned festivities on New Years Eve at any of the squares. They have not had any for the more than dozen years we have lived here.

People are going to have to get drunk and stagger around or try to drive in other locations.

The squares were free for the TREE LIGHTING. ALL THREE OF THEM. Two have VIP tents that seat a limit of 50 people. Look at this picture of all the people who didn't PAY for the tree lighting at Brownwood.

I will be sitting with my laptop, fingers hovering over the keys. At midnight, my favorite campground will start accepting reservations for next summer and I will snag my favorite spot on the river. Once I have secured my site, it's off to bed with the following thought running through my head, "The days are long. The years are short."

Ben Grauer died in 1977. When he died, New Year's Eve died with him!

1st night in Boston was a wonderful place and way to bring in the New Year when we lived there. Very kid friendly and enjoyable for young and old

Curious the ( 6 ) who were in the tent did they have on complimentary VIP " Sun Glasses ".

What are your memories of celebrating New Years Eve when you were...….younger?

We got dressed up; him, suit and tie, me something sparkly and dressy and usually went to a party hosted by friends, equally dressed up and had yummy snacky foods and alcoholic drinks and lots of conversation and went home quite tipsy before one o'clock.

When we had children old enough to drink and still under our influence, we insisted that they went to where they were going and stayed there for the night so as not to drink and drive.

No, it's 10:30. The advertisement for Katie Belles NYE party with Rocky and the Rollers said the music was until 10:30. Does that mean everybody leaves at 10:30 or you just sit there for 90 minutes?

The Villages Florida

New Year's Eve Party with Rocky & The Rollers

Celebrate the coming of a New Year with Rocky & The Rollers! Enjoy a buffet with carved Prime Rib of Beef, Steamship Round of Pork, Baked Fresh Salmon, Baked Parmesan Encrusted Roughy and more. Champagne Toast and last dance at 10:30. Happy New Year!

Nowadays asleep at least one and a half hours before midnight!

Back in the day, partied all night, went to work legless.
Think I slept until it was time to go round the pub and recover.
To the best of my memory, I think they said I had a good time!
