Because I can't wait for December 2012 either, I'm going to have my 2012 party on December 31, 2011!! I mean, hey, New Year's Eve is on a Saturday
night this year, so for sure, people will be looking for something fun to do.
The other advantage of staging a New Year's Eve 2012 party at the end of December 2011 is that if the universe opens (or whatever) on December 21st,
2012, we won't miss out on the chance to party on down for 2012 in spite of it.
I did something similar years ago, for New Year's Eve, December 31, 1983. The following day being, of course, 1984. So how did that party turn out?
Not only did everyone we invite show up, they brought their buddies as well. It was a complete mob scene, and I have the proof, because we had a
video camera running the whole time in the living room. Our local newspaper editor found out about it; he came, and he had such a good time that he
never wrote a word about it in the newspaper! (Some things you just don't want to share.) There is apparently nothing else quite like an End Of The
World party. Even the people we invited that couldn't make it said with reverence, "That is a great idea." The downside? It was
standing-room-only, although there was dance music on...but some folks managed to shake a leg anyway.
A lot of the ideas we used to set up the 1984 party are quite applicable for a 2012 party as well. Here are some examples:
Let's see, I think the cover of the invitation card was the following:
Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice, but everyone agrees the world will end in 1984 (change to 2012). So celebrate the coming
apocalypse with us at our New Year's Eve party, and come dressed as one of the following: One of the four horsemen of the apocalypse, George Orwell.
(etc.). [For 2012 you could add E.T., or your favorite shaman, etc.]
Inside the card for the 1984 party, we defined joke rules to be followed at the party, such as:
1) When you arrive at the party, you will be given a page with a 2-part number. The 1st number is your individual number (of course you have no name
in 1984, just a number), the 2nd number is your family number so that you can look around at the party and see what other "family" members you have
been assigned to.
2) The shower stall in the bathroom is the official political prison (complete with dry ice "fog"), where rule violaters must serve a 5- minute
sentence for each violation of the rules they commit. (Jail time self-timed.)
3) Anyone who reports rule violators to the host has to spend time themselves in the political prison...no kidding, some people really wanted to
inform on others.
3) A camera is set up in the living room to record everything you do, so that you will remember that Big Brother is always watching.
