New Years Anguilla 2017

New Year has always been traditionalised and globally observed as a celebratory time of year; one where we have the opportunity to start anew for the new year and accomplish even more than the previous year(s). It marks the first celebration of a new year, is celebrated in the company of loved ones and is definitely an extravagant one as well.

After an enjoyable holiday which consisted of jollifications such as Christmas (Christmas Tree Lighting in the Valley and the South Hill Christmas Experience) and Boxing Day Bash 4, it was time to round off 2016. On New Year’s Eve, better known as Old Year’s Night, many are patrolling the streets, party-hopping and being spectators to the annual firework displays while some others prefer to be either cooped up indoors enjoying family time in the comforts of their own homes or at beach-nics that were held from evening till the striking of the clock at midnight.

Most vehicles led to The Reef by CuisinArt as it was the ‘littest’ spot on the island! They hosted a launch party “Ciroc the New Year:  NYE 2016” while Sky Lounge presented “Breaking Dawn: NYE”. Not to mention, Da’Vida Restaurant and Spa housed guests as they witnessed performances by Omari Banks & His Band Eleven. Be mindful that the island was not limited to these celebrations; there was much more where that came from!

When the clock struck twelve, the party had just begun. Heels were kicked off; outfits were shortened because it was best to be comfortable enough to “get yah wuk up on!” After the formal outings had ended, all roads led to Sky Lounge, Water Swamp since that was where the real feting was. The party went till 5am and even then the party hadn’t stopped for some persons. This was definitely the best way to “Ring in the New Year”!

     Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”

The day was followed by family cook-ups, hangovers, sleep or better yet­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­– all. Despite all the adversity, trials and tribulations and losses (also known as “L’s”) received in 2016; we wish that your 2017 will be filled with more “fulfilment” than “failure”, more “joy” than “sorrow”, more “come backs” than “set backs”, more “compassion” than “indifference” and most importantly more “appreciation” than “disparagement”. As we walk into another twelve (12) months of our lives, let’s make every moment count!
