All Day & All Night Movie Marathon
Many people like to celebrate New Year’s Eve at home rather than go out.

Whatever the reason, there are plenty of ways to have a great night at home.
For example, you can host a movie marathon. This is an easy way to get the family together and enjoy some quality time. Choose movies that everyone will enjoy, including classics like Rosemary’s Baby and The Godfather Part II or new releases such as Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird.
Alternatively, you can watch the Times Square ball drop on TV. This is a worldwide event that has become a symbol of NYE. If you don’t feel like going out, you can stay home and enjoy the fireworks from your balcony or window. You can also stay warm and cozy by watching a film with a NYE theme.
A Limo Party is a great option for those looking to celebrate New Year’s Eve in style. It can be a fun and memorable experience that will leave you and your friends feeling like royalty. It’s important to remember that these events are usually limited capacity, so it is essential to plan ahead. You should also consider the size of your party to ensure that no one gets left behind.
