AIBU to hate New Year

I like Christmas, but I absolutely loathe the New Year "celebrations". I hate all the boring, retrospective TV and newspaper stuff, I can't abide concerts from Vienna and the TV programmes are just awful. We never stay up to see the new year in (not even in 2000), but at least here in rural Normandy we don't get woken up by other people's ghastly fireworks. I shall be so glad when it is the 2nd January.
Grumpy emoticon.

My First Foot was DH's friend's 7-year-old grandson, yesterday lunchtime. He ate 5 Rocky chocolate biscuits and sat and watched Bob the Builder......(we had a quiet New Year here!) hmm
