So you've never been kissed on New Year's Eve, not really anyway. In case you haven't noticed, Hollywood has been really good at making you feel bad about your life and how you live it. Whenever New Year's Eve is celebrated in movies, there's always a huge party with lots of glitz, glamour, and attractive people. It's understood by everyone at said party that when the clock strikes midnight, there will be a mass exchanging of spit amongst all the party goers. Sounds very romantic.
Unfortunately for some, maybe even most, these glamorous parties only exist in the wonderful world of movies. Most people I know spend the holiday with either their family or their closest friends. The only people that get that coveted midnight kiss are the people that are either married or currently seeing someone. Random kisses with random strangers are a thing of fantasy.
Personally, I spend my New Year's Eve with my family, which means that I don't "get" to kiss a stranger, but we'll just ignore the cootie factor for the sake of time. There are quite a few other things you could do to celebrate the new year that don't involve risking the contraction of mono.
Now who needs kissing when you have a bunch of fun new activities to participate in, right? Happy New Year!
