The 5 Social Rules of New Year’s Eve

If you're going to a friend's house for a New Year's Eve party, you should leave within the hour after the ball drop.

If you’re going to a friend’s New Year’s Eve party, don’t overstay your welcome.  A poll asked people how long it’s acceptable to stay after the ball drops and 52% said no longer than one hour.  But don’t leave too early either as 45% also think it’s rude to take off before midnight.  The poll also covered the best items to bring as a guest in which booze and desserts were the top picks.   Over half of the people involved also said it’s the one day of the year you should never be alone.
