  • Quality Time with Your Friends and Family:  reconnecting with family and friends is like going back to the roots. In the busy materialistic worlds that we live in, there is hardly any time for people to connect, sit and talk.  This can be addressed effectively during this time of the year.  You can show your family, friends, loved ones how close they are to you and their importance by spending some quality time with them.  You can also melt their hearts by buying them thoughtful presents or cooking up a storm in the kitchen by preparing their favorite foods.  If you are stuck somewhere then you must ensure to send them something to let them know that they are in your thoughts.
  • Fun, Frolic, Fraternity and Responsibility: this is a time when the fun frolic and feasting quotient goes up majorly, as globally that is what people do. It is an occasion where most people go out to have fun bidding adieu to the old year and ushering in the new. However amidst all this cheer there could be someone who may not be able to have the festive fun this year. This is the time to show your fraternity towards them and also to show your responsibility towards those who may not have the means to enjoy these kind of festive cheer. Start the year with giving a little of your time and your money towards those who may need it… one never knows your simple gifts may come back to you manifold.
  • Virtuous Resolutions: when it comes to ushering in a new year full of 365 days, everyone thinks about making new resolutions to make the coming 365 days more meaningful than the last ones.  This is the time when making plans for doing something meaningful in life comes up.  Apart from self improvement projects and resolutions, one should also keep in mind one’s responsibilities towards people who have been hindered by the society in some way or the other. There could be the lonely people in old age homes, the terminally ill patients or the specially challenged ones to visit once in a while in this year to share your festive spirit. Making people feel wanted and loved is a very step towards fulfilling your social responsibilities.
  • Celebrating New Year the Traditional Way: 1st of January is the New Year day that has been acknowledged by the people globally. This is also celebrated with much fun and frolic all over the world. However there are some culture and some traditions which will offer you much more than just the fun and excitement. There will be small traditional nuances and touches amidst these New year celebrations. We suggest you read them up and if you wish to have a different view of the world, then you visit these places to experience the different feel yourself.
