This Is New Years Eve!

New Year's Eve is when all the fun and festivities are. We see out the old year and ring in the new. While it is often thought of as a time to drink and be merry, many people take it as an opportunity to eat and be merry. Drinking is not as much a part of the event as it was decades ago, if only because of tougher drunk driving laws.

Don't forget, if you plan on drinking tonight, don't be driving! Hand over your keys and have a designated driver take you home.
