FOLKS! DONT IGNORE YOUR FAMILY:
The New Year jubilation is to be frittered with the family members. Wherever you may be, make sure to crop into your beloved ones place. Instead of hanging in the air meaninglessly, share the joy and happiness with your parents for they are still alive and are living to see you in a state of wellbeing.
RINGING OF THE TEMPLE AND CHURCH BELLS BRINGS GOOD OMEN:

WEAR A ROMANTIC ROOSTER RED DRESS:
According to Chinese mythology, wearing a charming red dress will invite good luck.
Fashion outfits must be made from fabrics like scarlet satin, shiny silk, brocade, organza are considered as the best shades for the occasion. The ladies must be groomed with bright ornamental jewellery, accessories and flashy feather decorations.
Men can follow with their extravagant style of dressing themselves with sheer shirts, trousers and jacket with lapels that will add eccentricity and dandyism in their personality.
DAZZLE THE EVE WITH DIAMOND DECORATIVES:
Use colourful confetti, ribbons, balloons, danglers, glittery sticks and posters around the four chambers of your house. Add some spark to the ceilings of your baby’s bedroom by buying a set of phosphorescent stars, constellations and planets that can be glued over the top above the bed. This way, your kid will think of you every night before he falls asleep.
MAKE SOME NONSENSE! MAKE SOME NOICE!
You don't need to be drunk to get loud on New Year's Eve! Buy some blasting noisemakers like cornet, trumpet, buggle, pipe,shophar, whistles or a horn. Blow out the noisy tools and merry go round around the house to spread the happiness.
On the last 31st day of the year lets laugh and giggle to play up the diddle-diddle. Lets bundle ourselves to boogie with the bunny brats with the fiddle.
EATING LUCKY FOOD FOR DESTINY AHEAD:
Particular foods are relished during the New Year’s supper because of their symbolic meanings. As fish represents surplus of money in Chinese culture, a fish dish becomes a must for a prosperous dining. Other New Year foods that you can devour are dumplings, spring rolls, glutinous rice cakes, grapes and sweet rice balls.
TICK A TICKET TO THE TENTALIZING TAVERNS:
Be the beneficiary to enjoy the benefit of the bash with beverages like cocktails, mock tails and premium beers of your taste. Sparkling wines and sweet sherry make a great sip. But be a responsible boozer tonight.
HOST A POTLUCK AND REUNION DINNER:

BINGE ON THE BRINNER! BINGE ON THE BACON!
We want to be awake all night partying and feasting over the fun finger fried foods.
Just like the Brunch, we want the foods to come in the fusion style. We can mingle the breakfast with the dinner to make up a Brinner for our hungary tummies.
TAILOR A BONUS BLESSED BOUNTY BAG FOR YOU AND FOR OTHERS:
Make some fancy boutique bags and stuff them with small souvenir, keychain, earrings, pendant, brooch, or a lip balm. The bag should be opened only after the clock tick twelve. This can be an enjoyable experience for your and for others.
GRAB A GORGEOUS GIFT BASKET FOR YOUR BELOVED ONES:

An assorted bag filled with foam bath salt, shampoo, essential bath oils, silk robe, soft towel, toe scrubber, comb, mini mirror and footie can surprise your parents, grandparents and yoursweet siblings.
ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO HONOUR THE NEW YEAR BALL:
Create a stand up circus or a crazy theme.
As an afternoon activity, book a ticket to the theatre and watch a blockbuster movie.
Gorge into the galaxy of your grannies’ storytelling spree.
Build a Barbeque Carnival in your corridor.
Drive on your wheels with your wife and kids.
Road runners may rove out for their midnight marathon.
Prepare a fancy cheese platter for your pals.
As a responsible boozer, be honest on the number of pegs you will be guzzling down into your gut tonight.
