new years even in the USGet four different ideas for what to do on New Year’s Eve in New York City.

Today we are talking about what people do in New York on New Year’s Eve!

Here are some things that you can do in New York!

  • Watch the ball drop in Times Square: Be sure to plan ahead and have a strategy. You will have to stand in the same place for several hours. Prepare for the cold! Dress warmly. What does it mean to dress warmly? Wear long-johns, wear a wool hat and mittens, wear heavy jeans, and boots, and thick socks with wool!
  • Go to a house party: This is the best way to get to know native English speakers in the US and make new friends. Don’t forget to bring a bottle of wine and/or a snack for the host. Sometimes New Year’s Eve parties are formal so find out ahead of time whether it’s formal or casual. A lot of people think that New Yorkers aren’t friendly but that’s not necessarily true!
  • Do a fixed- price meal at a restaurant: This will be expensive, but it could be a nice way to celebrate with friends.

Happy New Year!
