Take a look at the whole thread and post as you wish. We blokes value a female viewpoint. Correct fellars?

    Ok, now we've established that I hope more people come along with any special memories they have of NYE as children, something that they have never forgotten.

    I don't remember any parties on New Years Eve, we invariably stayed in our house. At midnight, the coal mine siren would sound for a minute or so. Neighbours would come out and greet each other and drinks would be exchanged with them. We would save a couple of rockets from Bonfire Night and let them off at midnight. One other house about 3/4 miles away would do the same, but apart from our two houses, no-one else let off fireworks. In the 80s, our next door neighbours would often come round and we would make a night of it. After my grandfather's death, my grandmother would spend NYE with us and about 12.30am we would walk to her house and I would walk through her house to let in the new year.

    I particularly remember NYE 1986. Our neighbours were going to a night club and it was fancy dress. Our neighbour and her friend were dressed as St. Trinian's schoolgirls and one--I think it was the friend--borrowed my old school tie. Our neighbour's husband stripped down to just his boxers and she then covered him from head to toe in bandages to make him into a mummy. They asked me to give them a lift to the night club. It was an icy night and I slipped over going down to the garage. They had had a few drinks, and I ended up with two giggly girls on the back seat and a mummy sitting next to me in the front--that was so surreal.
