Celebrating New Year’s can be full of emotions, both good and bad.  While some people love the start and opportunities to fulfil their grand plans, others treat it as another day of social embarrassment. Still, regardless of your feelings, and regardless of your plans for the last eve for the year, there are ways that won’t leave you regretting on January 1 – not to mention needing to make resolutions like ‘I won’t repeat what happened last night’

So before you raise you glasses and scare off the last sense in you, here are top 6 quick Do and not to do lessons for you:

Caution: Read only when sober

Lesson 1# – Do get prepared before you step out:  Yes, there will be crowd which might behave rowdy, there will be bouncers to keep a close check and then there will notorious creatures around to have a gala time. Be mentally prepared for this. Do carry a fully charged cell phone with most trusted person on your speed dial, remember your house keys and carry enough cash along with ID cards and credit cards.

Lesson 2# – Don’t Stress yourself with the ‘outfits’:  People, December is a cold month and it is normal to feel cold outside. Don’t seek validation by wearing those outfits without anything warm. You can take it all off once you are inside the party. Also, girls, be careful of what you wear. You don’t want to end up pulling up and down your dresses throughout the night with the discomfort on your face. Also, don’t wear something that is really expensive or important to you.

Lesson 3# – Choose a party or keep choosing a party: one of the worst things you can do to yourself on New Year’s is to play the night by ear. This never works. While most of the clubs/public parties will have high cover charges and long queues, some places would not even like to have surprised guests as well. It is better to research and choose your options. Also, do leave yourself to attending multiple parties without making promises to stick for the entire night. You never know if the bash is going to work or not. Remember to change the venues when you want, just follow the rule of traffic, one does not want to celebrate the midnight hour on the road alone.

Lesson 4# – Dear Social animal, doesn’t need to be an animal: what is the point of yelling at the poor bouncer. Trust, he is just doing his job.  It is probably for a good reason. Be in queue, everyone will ultimately be in. Poor guy is working on this eve too, respect him. Screaming at him will do no good then to having spend the night with the cops. Also, know your limits. The evening is not a competition to see which idiot drink the most and howl like an animal later. You don’t need the first day to be treated as the recap of what you did last evening.

Lesson 5# – Enjoy the party with some sense: This is not the time to keep that malice inside you. Just forget everything and enjoy the party. Drink water throughout the evening to keep you hydrated. It is better not to vomit or feel nauseated after a glass or two down. Also, don’t get all sentimental and do drunk dialling your exes, friends and family. You will get countless opportunities in New Year to make mistakes, don’t start this soon.

Lesson 6# – Be Rational and nice to yourself: What we all like the most – making  New year’s resolution, should be the rational one. Instead of jotting down what not do in the coming year, make pointers of things you would like to accomplish in the next one year. It could start like ‘I will try skying diving and conquering my fear of height’ etc.

Like it is famously said, if you cry the first day- you cry the whole year, so be little cautious and spend the eve nicely without morning regrets the next day. And the eve is equally important to others, so don’t be obnoxious!

Wish you a healthy and fun-filled New Year’s, let the cupid shower love on you J
