New Year is something that we all look forward to. It marks the beginning of a year and the end to another year. Everybody looks forward to begin a new year with great fun and enjoyment and wish that the year ahead brings them in, all goods. I too want to celebrate this great day with all the blast that I can. Two days before the New Year, we will start our preparations. We decorate our house, get things in order, buy crackers and get them ready and we look forward to the great day. On New Year’s Eve is when we enjoy the maximum. From morning, the kids would be busy packing up gifts and planning pranks that could be played when the clock strikes 12.00 at night. So much of fun will be involved that we will totally forget the passing time. Some years, friends and relatives stop by and we all join together to make it even more great. By evening, everybody will be in full spirits and would be out. We will go for partying and enjoy a great deal over there

I will go to spend time with my family and will take them for dinner and finally fire crackers at 12 am with emerging of 2018. I feel it is not a religious festival, but a time to celebrate as we are entering into a new year, so some party and some enjoyment should be there with family.

No plans for celebrations and have to cover events and to do live and walk-through about celebrations in Jammu City. This is a routine of any media person, who is with television channel. But we enjoy with different people at different locations, but will miss the family.
