If you’ve been following my Instagram and Facebook feeds you’ll have seen my photos and know that I’m in Vietnam right now and celebrated New Year’s Eve in Ho Chi Minh City. Sorry.  So not Sorry!  We did the same in 2011/12 with dinner at the rooftop terrace of the Rex Hotel and loved it so much we went back and did it all over again this year. It was just as amazing second time round.

Another New Year’s Eve that I loved was Millennium Eve 1999 which was spent with 12 very special friends counting the clock down to midnight with champagne and streamers on London’s Tower Bridge.  The atmosphere was electric, strangers became friends on that bridge, and we all had a ball.  Another classic New Year memory. There have been parties, quiet nights in with friends and a few drinks down at the pub over the years – all different and all special.

How do you celebrate New Year?

So, how and where did you celebrate over the New Year period this year?  Were you dancing in the fountains at Trafalgar Square as fireworks lit up the midnight sky?  Maybe you were cozied up in front of a roaring fire with the person you love most in the world or perhaps you addressed the haggis at Hogmanay. What does New Year’s Day hold for you?  Do you have family traditions?  We like a New Year walk along the seafront or in the woods if we’re at home in Sussex followed by a classic English roast dinner with the family.
