I talk about celebrating the New Year at LagunaBeat and I'll save you the trip. Here's what I said, kinda'.
Beacuse New Years Eve is Saturday and nobady counts Saturday as a real day means Friday IS the real News Years Eve.
Taking that a step further that makes Sunday a non-New Years Day. There is no Rose Parade on Sunday. Isn't that proof enough that Sunday is a non-day? So that makes Monday the REAL first day of the year.
To sum up: Friday is the last day of the year and Monday is the first day of the new year.
Three days of celebrating the new year - Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
And I'm still going to the Rose Parade. Taking the train all the way. That would be Monday the first day of the year.
