If students want to help make a difference for others as the first thing they do for the year 2020, in Jacksonville Florida, will be happening New Year’s Day. Beginning at 9 a.m. people can plunge into freezing water to raise proceeds for the Special Olympics of Florida. Students can just show up no fee necessary.
- Spending time with family.
Students can also spend time with family. Many students go home during the winter break or visit other family members. A fun way to spend New Year’s is planning a dinner or a party with your loved ones. It can also be a great way to reflect on resolutions as a family.
- Spending time at home.
If you are someone who would rather relax or not do much on New Year’s Eve but still wanted to celebrate, watching the New York Times Square Ball Drop on T.V. is not a bad option either.
- Roar into the 2020 New Year’s Eve Party.
101 N. Patterson St.
Valdosta GA 31601
If students will be in Valdosta for New Year’s there will be a 1920’s themed party for anyone 21 or older that will serve food, drinks and have live music. It will be taking place on Dec. 31 from 9 p.m. – 1 a.m.
- Spend time reflecting on your own goals from this year.
New Year’s is a time of reflection of the current year’s events and memories. Some things might’ve gone well and other things could’ve gone better. Some students might enjoy just writing down what they have accomplished and what they wish to accomplish for the next year.
This time of year is about learning from your decisions and goals while being able to set new ones for next year. Don’t forget to enjoy some time with yourself or others for the accomplishments made.
