New Year’s Eve is going to look quite a bit different this year: no impressive fireworks display in the capital, no parties in the pubs and no large gatherings at home. With all of the tiers in the UK having restrictions on socialising, it’s likely that most of us will be celebrating in a very low-key way with just our own household, indoors. Even though in some ways we can’t wait to see the back of 2020, we think it’s still worth taking a moment to mark the passing of another year.
Here are some New Year Eve Games and Ideas to usher in the new year in style at home:
Try a New Tradition
Take some inspiration from New Year’s Eve traditions from around the world. In the Philippines they dress in polka dots for good luck. And in Denmark it used to be all the rage to throw plates at your neighbours’ door (the more broken crockery you found in the morning the more popular you were)! Now we don’t recommend doing that, but it might be cathartic to take the 2020 calendar and burn it in the back garden! Another idea is to have everyone write down their hopes, wishes and predictions for 2021 on bits of paper, fold them up and put them in a big jar. Then in a year’s time you get the jar back out and see if any of them came true.
Ring in the New Year in the fresh air
If you have some outside space, why not change things up and see in the new year in the fresh air? There’s something so cozy about getting bundled up on a cold night, you could light some sparklers, have some hot drinks in flasks and if it’s a clear night, do some star gazing. We’ve all spent more than enough time inside this year! If you have a barbeque, camping stove or even just some candles, light them up for extra coziness.
Dressing up with a Difference
This has been a year of working from home for many of us, with dress codes going out of the window. You’ll probably find that you have loads of things in your wardrobe that haven’t seen the light of day since 2019. Well, how about creating a new dress code this NYE? The rule is, you have to wear things that you haven’t been able to wear all year. Maybe it’s the summer dress from the holiday you had to cancel, or the smart suit from your normal office job that you haven’t needed to wear. Now’s your excuse to get dressed up!
Resolution Party Game
Here’s a great way to reconnect with your household after a stressful year. Everyone thinks of two genuine new year’s resolutions and one fake one, writes them down on pieces of paper and they all get placed in a hat or bowl. Take it in turns to pull a resolution out of the hat/bowl and guess who wrote it. Extra points are awarded if you correctly guess which are fake and which are genuine.
