January 1st is usually a day that most of us look forward to. It means a new start, and sometimes a new career, new resolution, new mindset, and most of the time it’s a good change. If it hasn’t been the best of years, who wouldn’t want a chance to reset and start again? And if it has been the best of years, there’s excitement to see what the new year brings. Regardless, you have to bring in the new year right! If you don’t plan on having a nice quiet night at home, check out the events I found that will start 2017 with a bang! Happy New Year!
