 It's New Years and with all the curfews going on, you think it would be better for you to stay home rather than wondering through the streets and being charged at every other checkpoint. Don't be so disappointed! Spending New Year's eve at home with family and friends for a change can't be that bad, especially when you can come up with new things to do just staying indoors.

  • A marathon of your favourite TV shows/movies – You can do this with your significant other or with a group of friends. Theme the food and drinks to go with the show or movie you'll be watching. Go with staples like pizza if you're going for a marathon of your favourite show – Friends, or fancy drinks if you're watching a classic movie.

  • A barbecue party – Nothing beats celebrating the New Year's eve with a barbecue on the porch or the roof top with your closed ones. Call all your friends and family over to your place and ask everyone to join in and help with decorating the place, arrange a dance floor, and help you with the barbecue. You can take turns when doing all these so that everyone can enjoy. Turn on some music, put on your fancy clothes, and dance till you drop!

  • Game night – Whether it's a big house party or a small get-together with just a few friends, make a game out of your resolutions. Games are the best way to make a party more festive! If you have got youngsters on your team, go with the classic game of Musical Chairs, and for the adults, there's always Spin the Bottle. Order in some food, make some fancy drinks, and get yourself ready for the countdown. You can also go for a Casino-themed party.

  • Dinner date – This would be for those love birds out there. Invite your significant other for dinner, and cook their favourite meal, even if you don't know how to cook and it takes all day for you to go through the tutorials, a little effort never hurt anybody. Surprise your other half and make them feel special for a day (other than his/her birthday of course).

  • Going old school – Host an adult sleepover party and relive your childhood. Provide snacks, movies, and fun games; additionally get some wine to make the evening apt for grown-ups. You can do this with a group of your close friends or cousins you haven't seen for a while. Happy New Years everybody.
