On this day, you can't even move or walk anymore because your legs have become too weak from standing too long all because you've gone out to town to celebrate the countdown to New Year's Day.All you wanna do is rest all day because you stood for 12 to 16 hours straight waiting for the countdown, and you're hungry and thirsty because you didn't eat or drink anything for that long, and you want to be in an oven because you're frozen from being outside in the cold for so long.And of course on NYD the stores are closed and you can't buy anything, including food, and this is a problem for those who are out of food and got malnourished that day and night before New Year's Day. - Gregory
Luckily I am not AmericanIn my country we can ignite fireworks no countdown
They close stores because of a new date on a calendar. POINTLESS!
They close stores all because of a new year. Pointless holiday

People who have went out to cities like Times Square or Vegas have been taken on stretchers by paramedics and have been treated for hypothermia and extremely low blood sugar from dehydration and standing forcibly for so long.Also they're in a LOT of pain from major cramps from long term standing and bladder problems from not going to the bathrooms for more than half a day.Yet they can't walk anymore for a long time due to the low blood sugar and cramps from standing so long.And of course stores closed because of the new year and people aren't able to by food to refresh themselves with after not eating anything for many hours.There isn't a holiday even remotely as draining or painful as New Year's Eve. - Gregory
