PS: DO NOT feel bogged down if you are alone or somehow are not celebrating this New Year’s eve doing something exciting. We know that some of us would be away from our homes, our loved ones and friends. Don’t feel bad and simply go on a movie or a series marathon and enjoy whatever drink and food you like. Tucked in comfortably in your bed, watching some good cinema and enjoying some good food & drinks is not that bad a way to ring in the New Year, okay!
