New Years Eve turned out to be quite a frenzy. After finishing up our Raclette dinner at home, half an hour before the clock stroke 12, everyone who is in Verbier walks (or shall I say stumble) down to Place Centrale where we all gather together to begin our countdown. People are singing, dancing, and shouting out greetings to people they don't know. Ambulances are rushing to get to the man who is passed out on the curb. Almost everyone is holding a bottle of champagne, and you don't have to guess long that most of that champagne will not end up in anyone's stomach. May well be worth noting that one should not wear fur to this event. Imagine Koh Pangnan's Full Moon Party but in snow. If you have no one to kiss at midnight, do not worry, everyone is keen. My friend managed four.
