There are other ways to have fun besides going out for a night on the town. Consider staying in and enjoying each other’s company. Throw on some comfy clothes (or not) and soak in each other’s presence. You can toast the New Year with a glass of wine, hop in bed, and then hold each other until you fall asleep.
