#2

I’m saying NYE in general, but the past two years have been cracking, featuring an ex-DiSer and martial arts films


#3

Obviously Halloween cause Christmas is great and New Year’s Eve can be great as long as you don’t go anywhere near any city centre


#4

NYE is quite shit but at least there’s no fucking fancy dress.


#5

As above, NYE is really what you make of it, there’s no obligation to suffer all the long-held complaints - shit fireworks, overpriced clubs, endless taxi rides home etc. Just have some mates round and have some drinks, whatever, it’s just an excuse for party with a day off the next day.

Halloween is bullshit though, just an excuse for kids to be wankers and adults to be even bigger wankers.

Halloween for 3 reasons:
A. It is an American thing that should have remained there
2. It turns Bonfire Night into an also-ran
D. It turns my birthday into an also-ran


#7

All excellent choices, tbf, but I’ve gone with Christmas because it’s much easier to ignore/opt out of the other two, but good fucking luck avoiding Christmas.


#8

Feel really sorry for people who can’t enjoy Christmas :cry:


#9

I just try to focus on the one upside: an abundance of sprouts.


#10

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for a reason.


#11

I like all of them. Haven’t had a bad time at any of them in years.


#12

bonfire is NOT an also-ran


#13

It requires having mates who aren’t shit/living far away/busy though. Halloween’s quite easy to sit out, but sitting out NYE - because your only other option is a house party where your friend has invited loads of diabolically boring hardcore Christians - is a very lonely business. (This is going to be me this year.) Admittedly sitting out Christmas would be worse, but Christmas is just great so whatever.

Croydon?


#15

It’s looking like I should get @ttf round to mine for Christmas to compare Bass VIs.


#16

I guess NYE has more “pressure” to have fun, but the next day is a bank holiday, so it’s better than Halloween in my eyes.


#17

Halloween is my favourite time of the year. The other two can get to fuck, but I particularly hate Christmas…


#18

new years eve - fuck off


#19

they’re all fine, it’s other people’s behaviour during those times that can be the problem


#20

yep

I’m not NYE’s biggest fan - but it would be nice to at least have the option of a house party not to go to or whatever
