Most of us are deep into the final Christmas prep. You might have your decorations up, and the more organised amongst us have already finished their Christmas shopping. It’s a stressful time of the year with lots to prepare and do, and it seems to come rushing towards us like a jet plane. But, no sooner than it’s out of the way, our thoughts turn to New Year’s Eve.
For many, New Year’s Eve is one of the few opportunities that we have to let our hair down and enjoy a party. If you have children, it can be hard to find time to get out, and so many choose to throw a party at home instead of trying desperately to find a babysitter, or somewhere the kids are welcome. Even if you are childless, you might still prefer the idea of inviting close friends and family to your home, where you can relax together without having to worry about expensive tickets, drinks, and taxis.
