We celebrate New Year 2017 in original and unforgettable
Christmas feast at the table with a mountain of salads, appetizers and mandarin - this is, of course, great! We remember childhood when, together with our parents, we waited this night for a whole year. But having matured, each of us understands that we want to spend the holiday in a completely different way, remember it for long years and get a lot of impressions.
As soon as the thought comes to youhow to originally celebrate the New Year 2017, we advise you to look at this article. We have collected 10 alternative ways that will help to spend this holiday fun, memorable, and most importantly, cultural!
Unusual table for the New Year
There is a category of people who can not refuse from domestic gatherings. They like to create comfort, prepare treats, decorate an apartment and wait for the arrival of guests. As a rule, such people think over the New Year's program, fill it with entertainment and contests.
If you consider yourself to be one of them, but still your soul wants something new, we advise you to change the festive menu.Allow yourself to try the dishes that you have seen only in films and have long dreamed of finding out what they taste like.
Try to ensure that there is not a familiar drink or dish on your table. Perhaps, contact the kitchen of other countries, find out the recipes for exotic dishes on the Internet or ask friends. You can order Japanese or Chinese takeaway food (if there is a similar service in your city). Until the New Year 2017, there is still a lot of time, so you can easily create an original menu.
New year in the style of another country
Another way that will perfectly suit homebody is New Year's Eve in the style of countries you know. For example, you can decorate a house and think about clothes that are traditional for Japan or China: kimono, Chinese lanterns, candles, dragons and other bright decorations.
Give gifts to loved ones - homemade candles from Switzerland, cornel sticks like in Bulgaria, paired items like candles or cups, as is customary in China.
You can meet the New Year, observing the traditions of the chosen country: eating grapes to the chiming clock (Spain), turning off the light for a few minutes, so that guests can kiss (Bulgaria).
New Year in nature
For lovers of extreme relaxation, meeting the New Year in a winter forest or on the bank of a frozen river will seem like a real fairy tale. If you have ever spent the night in a tent in the winter, you will never forget these moments. Complete fusion with nature, silence, safe launch of salutes and the absence of drunken neighbors under the window - these are the main advantages of this New Year.
Find a secluded place, talk to your friends, gather companies and go to meet your adventures. Just stock up with all the necessary things (tent, sleeping bag, thermal underwear, dishes, groceries) so that you do not need anything on New Year's Eve.
New Year in an unusual urban place
If you do not like hiking in nature, you can always find an alternative - a place in the city that is suitable for meeting the New Year. It can be a high-rise roof, a lawn in a city park, a hill with a parapet, from where a wonderful view of the city, river, plain opens.
Each of your choices can be decorated at its discretion, make it cozy and suitable for celebration. The main thing is to gather a cheerful company, and then, even the most unprepossessing corner, will seem like a paradise.
Active New Year
For outdoor activities on the New Year, you can choose a lot of options: hiking in the woods or on the track, a skating rink, where the festive atmosphere soars and you can hear fireworks volleys, a party in the town square near the high Christmas tree and much more.
You still have time to find out everything, plan your route, save money and agree with friends. The main plus of this pastime is freshness, vigor, a sea of wonderful impressions and no hangover.
Good deeds in the New Year
Tired of annual gatherings in front of the TV? Want to do something important for people? Engage in New Year's charity. This does not mean that you need to stand on the square and distribute money to passersby.
Arrange a holiday for families in need, orphans or sick babies. There is nothing more beautiful than to see happiness in the eyes of those who have not experienced it for a long time. You can associate with a local charitable foundation and volunteer to be Santa Claus or Snow Maiden, who go home to the night before the holiday.
Do not forget that helping people, you become cleaner and richer, and good deeds - this is a great start to the year, is not it?
Alcohol-free New Year
What could be more original than a meeting of the New Year without alcoholic beverages. Especially for those who are used to celebrating a holiday with a bottle of something burning.
What to do on such a New Year's Eve? You can send your friends to the Christmas tree, sing songs and dance. We assure you, the energy of the crowd will catch you on its powerful wings, and you will surrender yourself to the power of fun and carelessness.
New Year alone
So it happened, we celebrate the New Year in the company of relatives and friends. And what if in 2017 to change this tradition and meet it all alone ?! At a time when one year is replaced by another, you can think about the actions you have done, make plans for the next year, and even make a wish.
If you have never met the New Year, then you should definitely try. And when you get bored, you can come to visit someone with an unexpected visit.
New Year in another country
This holiday, indeed, will be remembered for a long time. No matter what country you stay in, the main thing is that you will have a change of “scenery”. Pick up routes, stock up on everything you need and go!
New Year on the plane
As a rule, New Year's flights are somewhat more expensive, but it is exactly on December 31 that the prices for air tickets fall. Therefore, you can “kill” two birds with one stone: originally, you will meet the New Year and visit an uncharted country.
And remember, the more interesting you spend your holiday night, the more chances you have for the New Year's miracles that happen at this time.
