I Don’t Know How to New Year’s Eve

Outside of Every Social Scene as One Year Turns to the Next

“In previous years, at home with my wife, my family, or my partner, I’m sure I imagined that it would be fun to be one among the iconic masses of single, partying people on New Year’s Eve.”

It’s true that my Thanksgiving and my Christmas were somber and quiet. I cooked large traditional dinners for myself (one reason I gained back a portion of the weight I worked so hard to lose), and I enjoyed the plentiful leftovers for days. I also had more than one beer at a couple of the local dive bars surrounding both holidays (the other reason I gained that weight back), and mutually commiserated with the other lonely souls I found there.
