Blunting the impact of Happy New Year
Looking down on tree from balcony.
Some don't celebrate in bars packed with drinking, driving, craziness.
Impact on the road.
It's also "peak demand time" so they charge high cover.
Dancing is just as fun on Saturday before New Year's. Lower cover, not quite as crowded.
Celebration on the Internet blunts the moment. Softens the impact.
When is the moment of New Year's?
It's 9 PM here, when I connect with my friend in Quito, Ecuador. Midnight Quito time. My friend in Australia has already celebrated.
Happy New Year where ever you are. It doesn't have to be right at the same moment.
