Set your theme for the evening. Then, invite your friends (or opt for a virtual New Year’s Eve party).

This year, you may not be able to join the crowds at Times Square or party with friends and family. However, New Year’s Eve can still be great fun! We’ve all had some incredible challenges and triumphs thrown at us. But we are resilient, and celebrating another year proves that! As we get ready for the clocks to strike 12 on December 31st, we deserve some fun. 

That being said, the above activities are some great and inexpensive ways to draw a line through this year. We hope these activities prepare you for a fresh start. Happy New Year!
