In the conditions of general nervousness about the financial crisis, the New Year is sneaking up unnoticed. Someone was left without a company, someone without money, someone – without that, and without the other. According to a survey conducted at SHE, most of our readers plan to celebrate the New Year with their beloved person (36.2%), followed by a traditional celebration with parents and other relatives. New Year will be celebrated by 30% of readers, 20% in the company of friends, and 12% until the holiday there is nobody to meet. What to do on New Year’s Eve for those who have heartburn from “Olivier” and “Blue Fire”, learned the correspondent of SE.
If in harsh everyday life, communication with your loved one is limited to a good night’s wish, there is nothing surprising in that you want to meet the New Year together and at last to communicate properly. In the mind instantly there are cine candles, hearts and starched napkins. But this option will please in the event that your man in the soul of an incorrigible romantic. If his life is similar to one of the characters of Woody Allen – nihilism, cynicism, sarcasm and orgasm – then the plush props will cause only a smirk. “All this romance, in my opinion, is interesting for a woman, for a man it’s a test, torture,” says Alexander Block, the brand manager of the “Ura!” Event agency. “Men are included in games, unfortunately they do not like these romantic monologues.” What kind of games it will be depends on you and your imagination. Alexandra Block offers an option for those who like to play and take pictures – simulate the situations you want to visit in the new year: “But you need to prepare in advance – to prepare posters with a picture of what you want? and take a picture against their background. “
For example, if you dream of a holiday in Bali, wear a bikini, make a background of exotic plants and arrange a photo session.
Or draw a machine of your dreams – maybe it will give a psychological setting, and in a year you will be proud to show the pictures of this car.
Those who left the age of hand-drawn posters and got their own car, you can spend quite a cozy evening / night in the company of your favorite films. If you do not buy a home theater for this, the option is quite budgetary. In addition, not all can absorb what is offered on TV on New Year’s Eve – lovers of art house, you can make a holiday with your own hands. Make a list of movies and lie in an embrace on the couch, absorbing cakes and other goodies, laugh heartily over your favorite comedies, pity the heroines of love melodramas and rejoice that you have a beloved man by your side. How to successfully finish the evening, you probably guess yourself.
Grandmother by the side
If your family is not very numerous, Olga Vorobyova, the art director of the “Fantasy” holiday agency, proposes to celebrate the New Year traditionally, and then go on a visit:
“In a nine-story house, not all neighbors know each other. You can come and congratulate them, at the same time get acquainted or get a feast. You can use sweets as gifts. ”
It would seem that the presence of a cheerful friendly company the question “What to do?” Automatically takes off. But what to do after midnight, when everyone shouted “Hurray!”, Burned Bengal lights and called their parents? You can recall kindergarten matinees and arrange a ball-masquerade. Do not forget to warn the guests that they are waiting for a costume party with disguises, so everyone needs a costume. You can reincarnate in a New Year’s fairy or a seductive cat. If you have a satellite, dress him up as a cowboy, Count Dracula or somebody else. It is not necessary to buy a suit – it can be built from improvised means, indicating the main elements, for example, a hat. “Even if a big company is going to, still there must be one active person, the organizer,” says Olga Vorobyova. –
You need to prepare in advance, you can make an art gallery, link the holiday with creativity, drawing and in the finals in general go to New Year’s body art.
Those who refuse to give their bodies to the creative painters and do not want to pull on the Santa Claus cap, but still can move, you can take them for a walk – go to the nearest park, if the weather permits, breathe the air and blind the snowmen company. Frosty air and active movements will help to not suffer the next day – neither from a hangover, nor from the gained kilograms.
question “What to do for a lonely girl on New Year’s Eve?” Discouraged even the most experienced art directors. Well, firstly, there are very few cases when there is not a single familiar person with whom you can combine your efforts to achieve a festive mood. Secondly, if it happened, do not go to bed, covered with a pillow – all the same screams “Happy New Year!” And explosions of petards will wake you up.
“If the mood is bad, in any case it needs to be splashed out somewhere,” notes Alexander Blok. – Take some creative action – write something, paint the glass, it’s an art-relaxation, a splash of emotions. “
If in the old year someone has strongly offended you, as a result of which you are alone, the main thing is not to feel sorry for yourself, it’s better to get a little angry and blow up a couple of firecrackers to all the enemies out of spite. If the street does not pull, stay home and remember Bridget Jones (by the way, not the worst movie for a girl without a company). Write a list of your goals for the next year: enough to wish others – wish for yourself! Do not try to suffer and sympathize with yourself: being one is better than being in a bad company – on any day, regardless of traditions and holidays. This time you just did not find a good one, but a whole year ahead. For now, forget about diets, eat ice cream packing, if you really want, and dream about enjoying along with some pretty heroine of the film.
If on December 31 you were in the wrong place and not with those people, do not make this tragedy. In the new year, you will surely catch up.
