10 reasons why New Years Eve isn’t all it’s cracked up to beBy Sj.Cliff
Depending on where you work, New Year's Eve isn’t usually counted as a holiday.
If you go out, be prepared to pay £20 to get into a terrible pub.
That’s heaving with people who’ve already been there for hours.
There is always one person that has too much to drink and crys/gets rowdy/annoys everyone.
Oh, and it’ll probably be raining.
No matter what firework display you go to, they’re never as good as the ones at Big Ben. (Unless you’re there. Then we hate you.)
If you stay local it’s like a school reunion - no one wants to spend New Year’s Eve with people they’ve been trying to avoid for the last 5 years.
And if you’re single, you’ll know. All your mates are in relationships and they always plan a couply thing for you to third-wheel.
Then Auld Lang Syne starts playing. Does anyone actually know he words to that song? Nope, they just guess and fill the room with cringe.
It’s just a bit of an anti-climax, really. At least it doesn’t happen again for another year!
