When I was young New Year’s Eve was a night to go out with your date to a night club, have dinner, wine and Champagne and dance the night away. We had people that personified cool for that night on the town. No body did it better when I was growing up than the ones that had style. They were there for their enjoyment and for their lady. They didn’t pose, they actually had a good time.
Somewhere along the road night clubs disappeared, and there might be four different seating times for the same New Year’s Eve. Dance floors disappeared, well that is expected when music stopped being romantic and so did couples. All I know, is that that night, became a cash-cow with no revelry. Service is now expected to be poor on this night, and a guaranteed tip is factored in. The cool factor is gone, we now have a dinner parties at the house and it has become a tradition. So far, so good, and we will see how well this tradition continues. I am glad that I learned from the best.
My Bride and I wish that the New Year bring you plenty of love, luck, health and happiness.
