If you can’t refuse to have a homely gathering, at least diversify the table with treats that you have never tasted. Suppose there is no familiar dish and drink on your table. Try the cuisine of another country, ask your friends for delicious recipes and make cocktails yourself - alcoholic or not.
There is still a lot of time before the New Year, so you will have time to create an unusual menu.
By the way, if you decide to cook traditional dishes of other nations, why not meet the holiday in the style of the country whose cuisine you chose?
2. To join the traditions of another country
This is another way to celebrate the New Year with relatives and friends, but to make it unusual and memorable. Decorate the house in the style of another country. For example, Japanese Kadomatsu or Chinese lanterns and pictures with the wishes.
Give each other special gifts, such as homemade candles in Sweden, dogwood sticks in Bulgaria, paired items such as cups or candles in China.
It will be interesting to observe the New Year traditions of another country. For example, there are grapes under the chiming clock, as in Spain, or turn off the light for a few minutes for kisses, as in Bulgaria.
3. Meet the New Year in nature
It should be at least once to meet the New Year in the forest or on the bank of a frozen river. You are provided with an incredible silence, safe launch of fireworks and the absence of any irritants like drunken neighbors and screaming TV.
Until December 31, there is still enough time, so you will have time to find a place in the forest that your car can reach, without getting stuck on the way, buy a winter tent with a stove and thermal underwear, persuade friends and relatives and prepare seriously for the New Year in the wild .
5. Start the year with good deeds
If charity is not alien to you, try to celebrate the New Year by helping those in need. You can arrange New Year performances in hospitals and orphanages, distribute gifts and much more.
Helping other people, you become happier, and good deeds and calm self-righteousness is a great start to the year.
6. Mark New Year actively
There are many options for an active New Year. Skiing in the woods or on a well-groomed track. Go to the rink, where there will be fireworks and music. Go on a winter hike from the tourist center.
So instead of a full belly, headache and hangover, you will get freshness, vigor and wonderful impressions.
7. Give up alcohol
Remember when was the last time you celebrated the New Year without alcohol? If 10–15 years ago, then a non-alcoholic holiday will be a truly new experience.
Of course, you risk not being on the same wavelength with friends and relatives, but only if they do not agree to support you in this endeavor.
What to do? Explore unusual places of your city with tea in a thermos, get a job as a volunteer, skate, ski or snowboard. In the end, you can ...
8. To spend the New Year alone
On New Year's, it is customary to gather in large crowds: with relatives, friends, or even complete strangers. And what if once done the opposite, stay alone and devote this night only to yourself?
So you can, in peace and quiet, take stock of last year, set goals for the next, or just make a wish.
If you have not spent a single New Year in your life alone, you should probably at least try. Well, if you get bored, you can always make a surprise and come to visit someone.
10. Meet the New Year on the plane
As a rule, plane tickets are getting more expensive on the eve of the holidays, as people tend to celebrate the New Year on the spot. And on the dates of the holidays themselves, on the contrary, tickets are much cheaper.
If you take tickets for December 31, kill two birds with one stone: save on the road and get an unusual experience of meeting the New Year a few kilometers above the ground.
The more interesting you spend this day, the more chances you have for a New Year's miracle.

The main colors of this year are red and all its variations, cheerful orange, exquisite purple (as well as lilac and all other similar shades). Do not do in the New Year's decor without a golden sheen. But from the black and blue is better to give up.
Make sure the Monkey feels at home: hang beautiful garlands on the walls and the ceiling - let them wind like lianas in the jungle. A big vase with tropical fruits will not hurt - bananas, pineapples, oranges will suit the mistress of the new 2016.
And, of course, we must not forget that the elements of this year are fire. So everything should shine: from the lights on the Christmas tree to candles in expensive candlesticks.
How and what to decorate the Christmas tree - 2016
Dressing up the Christmas tree to celebrate the New 2016, show your imagination. Who said that only balls, cones and Santa Claus figures can be relevant? This year you can give free rein to creative impulses - and decorate a Christmas tree with literally anything.
Sweet Monkey will enjoy sweets in shiny wrappers and fruit - tangerines are the place to be on the Christmas tree! And still homemade toys will look great: garlands of buttons, "balls" of light bulbs, home-made snowflakes of multi-colored foil and all that is enough for your imagination.
The monkey, according to astrologers, loves money (but who does not love them!), So it will be a great idea to please the mistress of the coming year by hanging money notes tied with red ribbons on the Christmas tree. Then on top of that, you can firmly count on financial success in 2016.
Want to personally have a hand in decorating a New Year tree? Great idea! In addition, this can be done with children, then the joy and pleasure from the process will be much more. What beautiful can you do? For example, balls of thread or stockings for Christmas gifts.
In addition to the big New Year tree, this year you should dress up a few small ones - their role is perfect for bouquets of pine branches or your home plants. And if there is a palm tree or a famous money tree in the house, they just need New Year's decoration!
What should be on the table for the New Year - 2016
Everything! And more! The table should be bursting with treats, and the design should be bright and festive. The most expensive dishes, the most exquisite decorations, the most unusual dishes - everything should be the best. Do not forget the color of the symbol of this year - fiery red. Red and orange must be present not only in the decoration of the table, but also in the treat itself. Oranges, tomatoes, colorful peppers or strawberries - add bright colors to each dish.
Another feature of the menu for the New Year's table - an abundance of exotic dishes. Not only fruit (and they should be abundant), but also any other dishes. Be sure to cook something truly unusual, fine, if you didn't even know yesterday that such food existed. New Year's Eve is an excellent opportunity to try something new!
But you need to remember: despite the culinary abundance, on the New Year's table should be only "light" dishes: Monkey will not like too fat and heavy food. But fruit (and not only!) Salads very much like it. The task of this evening is to have fun, walk and dance, and not spend the whole night eating with delicacies. So no less attention than the decor, along with the table, should be given to New Year's entertainment.
And finally, we offer you some interesting and unusual dishes that can be included in the menu for the New Year - 2016.
New Year at sea!
Let's not forget that the symbol of 2016 is a small animal from solar countries, a thermophilic who loves to climb trees and eat fruits. Therefore, what could be more symbolic than to meet the coming year, for example, in Thailand, Vietnam or, for example, in India?
- the sun, warmth and palm trees,
- tan in the middle of winter
- the opportunity to swim in the sea / ocean.
- high prices. Winter is considered a tourist season for many warm countries. A trip, for example, to Thailand, will cost from 80 to 150 thousand rubles for two,
- Is this the New Year in our childhood performance? Far from all Russians are ready to trade the snow outside the window, the “Olivier” salad, the Christmas tree and champagne on the beach and palm trees. And perhaps they are absolutely right.
Whatever option ultimately becomes the final choice, I wish you that the upcoming event will bring only joy and pleasure. After all, according to popular belief, how to meet the New Year, so spend it.
