New Years Eve has to be the most overrated non event of any year.
We have just had a big Winter celebration with presents and all sorts of nice traditional stuff. Now, as a sort of sad afterthought, we are supposed to be celebrating the "Calendar" in all its glory.
Why? Why force yourself to go out and have fun when thats the worst possible start? Why pretend to like people you do not know? Why wander about in the freezing cold looking for Parties that will be rubbish if you find them anyway? Why participate in the hideous embarrassment and fake bonhomie of auld land syne
Its time we made a stand against this poor excuse o a celebration

I've spent the last few new years at parties etc but they've never been great to be honest. Going to spend the evening at home with my family this year.

I suppose once you're over a certain age, which most Lewesians are, every years a bonus. But don't knock our fun, hopes and aspirations you miserable basket case. BTW Happy New Year Everyone.

How about just don't do it if you don't like it? Or do you really feel the need to stop everyone else doing it too? For me, it's a bit of fun before everyone goes back to work and starts talking about diets.

I am afraid I must join the list of moaners, perhaps its because I have had a realy bad cold over Christmas. Anyway I have just driven past Aldi and the cars were queing to get in right up to the roundabout. It was the same in Tescos car park. I thought, half the world is starving whilst the other half dont know when to stop eating. Thats my gripe over, its probably my age because when I was younger I really enjoyed Christmas and the new year. Happy new year young uns.

Worst time of year Xmas and New Year almost make me wish I had a bit of Christian faith, at least then it might mean something. All this forced consumerism and bonhomie does my head in.
Roll on Springtime.

If Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Christ, why on earth do we buy every Tom Dick and Harry a present. Surely a gift to the upkeep of the church would seem fairer. Not only that, how many families start the New year in debt thanks to Christmas. The only people that come out of this in profit are the retailers.

What a daft time of the year to have (for most) effectively two weeks off work. Let's have it in the summer- long lazy days outside drinking cold beer around the barbeque...

I was planning on treating myself to a nice curry delivery tonight but Ganges seems to be shut. Time to start rummaging in the freezer.
Happy New Year all.

Grumpy Grinch, I was planning on being miserable tonight but happily miserable with my curry. Now that's not going to happen, I'll have to be miserably miserable. Cheers!

Pope, your lot got it wrong from the start. But in the spirit of Christ I forgive you.

Curate. Bless you my child, I shall meet you at the pearly gates. By the way my real name is not Pope but Jesus. I thought if I used this name nobody would believe me. Must go, I feel a miracle coming on.
