What can single people celebrate

This year, ignore your usual plans and do something different as you celebrate at a New Year's event for singles. Whisk yourself off to a fun locale, tailor a single party plan for yourself rather than spend the holiday with couples, and enjoy meeting new single people you can attend events with throughout the year. Jump start your romantic life and find yourself another single to form a pair.

Singles Cruise and Tours

Get away this holiday and ring in the New Year's on a singles cruise. Persuade your favorite single gal or guy pal to join you as you mix with other singles while sailing to such locales as the Caribbean, or explore Costa Rica and the Panama Canal up close. Cruises usually provide all meals; entertainment in the form of musicals, comedies, movies or piano bars; and they also have their own disco on board.

Singles Tour

You may also choose to do a land tour to Austria, where you will ring in the New Year at the Hofburg Palace. Dress in your most elegant attire as you attend the Imperial Ball for the evening, dancing a waltz waiting for the clock to strike midnight. Spend New Year's Day touring the Vienna Museum of the Fine Arts.

Big Bash

Another New Year's event for singles is the big countdown event in your local city. Grab a couple of friends or go to it alone, mingling in the streets with others as you wait to sing "Auld Lang Syne" when the clock to strikes midnight. Afterward, hit a couple of house parties or pop into a dance club and dance the rest of the night. Put the resolutions away until the morning.

Enjoy the Night

New Year's events consist of single parties at hotels, single groups and restaurants. Save your spot and make reservations or prepay before the big bash. Wear your sexiest sparkly outfit and mingle as you dance, drink and eat. Or for a quieter evening, join a small group of close friends for dinner and drinks together before you go to one of their homes to watch the countdown.
