Chronicle poll results: New Year’s Eve plans

We asked our readers what their plans were for New Year's Eve. Here's what they said.

Last week, the Chronicle asked its readers in an electronic poll the following question: “What are your plans for New Year’s Eve?” Most of our readers are homebodies. Of the 231 people who responded, 69% said, “a quiet night at home”; 17% said “attend or host a party”; 10% said “dinner at a restaurant”; and 4% said they weren’t sure yet. Comments were submitted by 58 people. A few follow.

Loud noise, high prices, unmasked crowds, drunk and stoned drivers. Yeah, I’m staying home.

Going to watch the Steelers football game.

Stay home with my cat and watch TV. Same as every year on New Year’s Eve.

I’ll Zoom “A Jewish Renewal New Year’s Eve” from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Always dinner and a movie with friends.

This is simply turning a calendar page; it means no more than that to us. Put another way, we have wonderful, glorious holidays all throughout the year. We celebrate those, not this.

We haven’t gone out on NYE in over 30 years. Safer at home.

Crawl under the covers and pray for peace on Earth and goodwill toward all people.

Usually stay home. It’s amateur night and I don’t want to be in an accident.

Gathering with a number of our neighbors in our building.

Daven for Israel as the new year starts.

Having my daughter, son-in-law and 6-year-old grandson come over to celebrate! Priceless!

I will be going to bed at 9:30. I celebrate the new year on Rosh Hashanah.

Still deciding what to wear to my living room tonight. PJC
