The New Year is just around the corner, and New Year’s Eve celebration preparations are well on their way too! It may be inevitable for grand events to be celebrated with abundant food and alcohol, yet there are healthy ways which New Year’s Eve can be celebrated. The best part of this type of celebration: waking up without the hangover and starting the year right!
Here are some creative ideas to celebrate the coming of a new year without the alcohol:
1. Organize an alcohol-free party. You can have the most glamorous decorations, the best-tasting food, the most colorful streamers, banners, and hats, and the most number of people that you can invite for your party, and have the best time without putting in the element of alcohol. Get your kids and friends involved in the preparation and you will surely have an awesome party.
2. A movie marathon during New Year’s Eve isn’t a bad idea at all. If you have friends who want to do away with alcohol for the New Year’s, you can invite them over to your place and watch New Year-themed movies. Some fun suggestions are When Harry Met Sally, 200 Cigarettes, and The Apartment. It could also be the best time to catch up on movie series like Harry Potter or Star Wars.
3. Gather your nerdy or geeky friends this New Year and wait for the New Year by playing your favorite board games like Scrabble or Monopoly. Add in some nice finger-foods, chips, non-alcoholic drinks, and fun prizes and you’re all set for New Year’s Eve.
4. When you can’t get away from parties involving alcohol, volunteer to be your group’s designated driver. You will have a good excuse to not get drunk. Get a strawberry daiquiri or soda water with lime as your choice of drink to keep yourself alcohol-free.
