Wanting to stay in?  Last year,  my menfolk and I had a Rockin’ New Year’s Party, complete with a photo area, treats and party blowers.  We spent the evening toasting in the different time zones as they came into the New Year.  They actually made it to midnight and we watched the fireworks over the Space Needle!
