How to Party on New Year's Eve, Kiwi Style

We've been traveling in New Zealand for the holidays, and we came across this prescription for a great New Year's Eve party.

1. Find a nice little community, preferably on the water on a pretty island, one like Oban on Stewart Island.

2. Have at hand a big pub/restaurant with ample food and drink.

3. Mix in a local band that can play a little bit of everything and put them up on the balcony overlooking the beach.

4. Let this brew simmer; no need to add any extra ingredients.

5. Build a great big bonfire on the beach and light it off after sunset.

6. At midnight, finish it off with everyone singing "Auld Lang Syne" at the top of their lungs.

7.  Enjoy the afterglow!

 Oh yes: don't forget to bribe Mother Nature to provide pleasant weather, especially when it has rained most of the day.

Happy New Year, everyone.
