7 Great ways to enjoy your New Year's Eve
by Mr Yellow
It's time to wrap up 2017 and welcome the new year. But organising New Year's Eve celebrations can be quite a headache. So many decisions: What to do? Where to go? Who to meet? What to wear?
Kick off 2018 with any of these 7 great NYE ideas! But remember, whatever you choose to do on New Year's Eve, do not drink and drive.
Organise a house party
House parties are fast becoming a popular way to celebrate New Year's Eve. You get to surround yourself with the people who matter, in a comfortable environment and with guaranteed good food and drink. Take it up a notch by preparing a playlist with the best music of 2017.
Make sure no one leaves your house without a lift home, especially if they've had too much to drink.
Have a cosy family night
Bring out the board games and the DVDs, and snuggle up for a comfy NYE that's hassle-free and full of family fun. You can play indoor games like charades, or tune in to a marathon of Christmas movies.
Plus, you don't even need to cook - order a take out or phone for food delivery. Do it as early as you can if you don't want to end up disappointed, and hungry, on the night.
Malta's capital city is the place to be if you want to get into the 'end of the year' spirit. Apart from the annual celebrations in St. George's Square and the Waterfront, you can also opt for a quieter night in one of the city's wine bars or restaurants.
The last night of 2017 might be the perfect opportunity to wine and dine in an amazing place on the outskirts, or less explored areas, of Valletta. And Yellow can help you book a table online within minutes of searching!
Dance the night away
If you like the party atmosphere, there are plenty of big parties held every New Year's Eve. So slip into a cocktail dress or a tuxedo and get ready to dance your way into the new year.
If you're not the clubbing kind of person, other more mellow dance parties are organised all over the island.
Take over a karaoke bar
Unless you have your own karaoke machine at home, singing your favourite tunes with your loved ones in a karaoke bar is definitely a unique way to celebrate New Year's Eve.
It's an ideal option if you want an enjoyable night filled with laughter. And, who knows? You might even be discovered by a talent scout in search for a Eurovision-worthy voice.
Enjoy a fancy dinner party with your friends
Food, glorious food! The night of December 31st is probably going to be your last opportunity to indulge in delicious food before you attempt to get healthy in the new year. So why not make an event out of it?
A dinner party is a classic way to celebrate NYE with good friends. Do it in style and get all glammed up for the special evening. Then pop open the champagne after everyone has had enough of eating one course after another.
Host people in need
Share your New Year's Eve joy with people who aren't as fortunate. These could be family members living on their own or going through a difficult time. Or people you know, who don't have the means to celebrate during the holiday season. Why not invite them over for dinner and offer them a warm dinner, surrounded by people who care?
If you don't know anyone in need, but you'd still like to reach out and help, go ahead and contact any of these charities listed on Yellow.
