    NZXT is notorious for setting up North America-specific contests while shunning the rest of the planet. Is this competition worldwide?

    Anyway, my favorite New Years memory:

    Three years ago. Me, my wife, her sister, husband, and their kid, all went up to Kongsvinger, Norway. We were staying at one of their mutual friend's homes. We arrived late, so all the kids were asleep for the night. Still, all us adults had a great evening talking and drinking around the fireplace, then went outside at midnight to launch all our fireworks; batteries and miscellaneous rocketry. The ladies were all tired and went to bed, leaving me, my brother-in-law, and the friend's husband to our own devices. Rum and cognac flowed freely.

    All that evening they kept offering me wine, but I detest the stuff. Well, after so much rum and cognac, I quit caring and gave in. Crawled along the wall to bed an hour after that, something like 4am. By 5am I was in their bathroom, puking my guts out from both ends. I wanted to die. Oh god, how I just wanted to die. I was so hot, shaking, stinking, reeling, couldn't stand up. I crawled on my hands and knees into their kitchen and found a large bowl. I carried it to the hallway, towards the bedroom, but never made it that far. I passed out on a rug in the hallway.

    Sometime around 7, I was conscious enough to be aware of a kid yelling across the house, "Mommy, there's a strange man on the floor!"

    See, the kids had no idea who I was, having arrived after they went to bed. I was just some strange guy in their house, sleeping on a rug in the hallway.

    Yeah, good times!

    Moral: Never mix wine and hard liquor. Have one or the other, not both.

    We wanted to go to a lodge on December 30 but we left snowy road. We stayed two nights in a village until after the New Year and we enjoyed very much, although we do not know at all our hosts. We have not ever regretted that we have not reached the hut reserved.

    Maybe not the best but the most memorable was the year we lost power on New Years Eve. We were supposed to go to a party in the neighborhood but everyone's power was out as well. We ended up staying home, having champagne and listening to an ipod hooked to external speakers in front of a gas fireplace. At least we had that fireplace because it was very cold that night.

    The best New Years eve? hmmm. Considering that people is considered as a social-being, I will choose the days when we celebrate and face the New Years eve as a whole family, playing games, watching fireworks, sharing laughs, and eating at the same time.

    I know this might sound too simple, but hey, I know everyone else would enjoy this!
    Happy New Year guys!

    My favorite New Years would have to be the first that my wife and I celebrated together when we were dating. A friend of ours put on an all night party and brought in just about every DJ friend we had. I (barely) remember getting home two days later after the after party where most of the same DJ's dropped beats in the kitchen.

    My liver didn't talk to me for a week.

    My best new year memory was with my Grandmother when i was 7 years old. I know it is not as romantic as other people but if i think that she traveled all the way from India to USA just to celebrate Xmas and new year with us.

    My best NYE memory is one when I was still in college and it was all the kids who had stayed on campus over winter break who got together in someone's dorm suite. The RAs thankfully f'ed off with their silly rules and we broke most of them. if not all of them. anyway it was a blast and i was really thankful that it wasn't my suite we had it in. wouldve been terrible to have to clean that mess up.

    My best new years even was about 10 years back. I was at a party in friends house and i was eyeing one girl whole evening but somehow didint have the courage to walk up to her, After some time it was too late as i was too pissed to walk up to her. So i decided that i'll hit the sack for an hour or two to sober up and then i can try again. To my amazement after i woke up she was sitting beside me , waiting for me already.... It was a good night

    This happened about 10 yrs ago. I went to a party with friends and had too much to drink. I made it home and went straight to bed. I had a dream where I was standing over the toilet taking a pee.Then I woke up and discovered that I wasn't standing over the toilet at all

    My best new memory is my school days. When we went to school trip and that was first time when I went that far from home and enjoyed. It was really fun and its still in my mind. Whenever new year comes it just get refreshed.
