My first New Years Eve Party – An Observance

I know this going to sound strange, but last night was a first for a couple things for me. It was my first time seeing Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve countdown (well, I just saw the countdown part) and also my first New Years Eve Party.

Well, OK, not exactly my first, but my first as a guest! You see for 18 years, I was a DJ, so when I went to a New Years Eve Party, I was an employee. I was paid to be there and I really didn't pay that much attention to the people and what they were doing other than to make sure they were on the dance floor dancing.

But, last night, for the first time, I was invited to a New Years Eve Party as a guest and I got to kiss my wife at midnight and see Dick Clark do his countdown. But, what I also saw was a lot of people drinking... a lot. I've never really drank. I had a half a wine cooler on my 21st birthday and that really shows my party animal side.

But, I have to wonder why New Years Eve is such a heavy night for drinking and why so many people do it. You see, way too many people die each year because of the drinking and then those people making the choice to drive home afterwards.

You know what? I have to say I had a lot a fun at that party and I didn't have a single drink. So why does it seem so important to others that they have to drink to the point where the next morning they can't remember the ball dropping at midnight?

Just curious?
