Take an extra minute to arrange a safe ride home so you won't be tempted to drink and drive. See you in 2013!
It may be tradition to celebrate New Year's Eve with a glass of champagne, but if you're planning to enjoy more than one glass of the bubbly beverage, you may want to consider a designated driver to ensure you actually make it to 2013.
