People tend to put a lot of pressure on New Year’s Eve. It’s the sort of night meant for merry revelry and final indulgences before the clock resets for a brand-new year. Because December 31 is the final night of the year and a night for celebration, you may feel compelled to go out on the town to the trendiest restaurants, the best bars or a cool house party in order to ring in the new year. But we’re here to tell you that going out on New Year’s Eve is massively overrated. And there are a lot of good reasons why.
You see, New Year’s Eve is one of the busiest days of the year for bars and restaurants. The secret is that they know this — and many take advantage of the major crowds by boosting prices and initiating cover charges just to get in the door. And if that isn’t enough of a bummer for you, once you get inside these parties or eateries, you’re going to have to fight the crowds for a single drink or for your server’s attention.
That’s why staying home on New Year’s Eve often winds up being just as fun as hitting the town, and it comes with a lot less stress. You can end the year on a relaxing note while eating what you want, drinking what you want and only spending time with the people you really like. Still don’t believe this is superior? There are a lot more reasons why you’ll have more fun at home this NYE.
