“A Very Happy New Year . Wish you all the happiness in the world.”
You must be so done with this message right now. After all 10 days have passed since we stepped into another year and your message box must have been flooded with this exact message template sent to you by hundreds of your people, both familiar and random. Does that bug you? Well, then you are in our list. You may ask, which list? The list- which includes every type of people you normally notice on the eve of new year. Sounds interesting? Well,let’s get started then.
- The Party Head People:
They are every where. They are on your Facebook feed, on your WhatsApp status and in the Instagram story. Literally, whenever you open your social media, they rub off on you the party vibes making you cringe about what the hell you are doing on the eve of new year. Either it is cutting the new year cake or welcoming the new year followed by countdowns, these people celebrate things like never before making you crave to join them.They literally start their party from Christmas onwards, by the time new year arrives, you are so done with their happily celebrating pictures, either you unfollow them or mute them.
New Year? What is that?
They are just the opposite kind of people from the first one. New year is just another year for them. The only change that comes in their life is the change in the calendar on the wall. I They remain oblivious to all types of party and celebration and almost deny to acknowledge the year that is coming. Imagine placing them before the first kind of people. Sure some fire works going to lit up the January sky.
- Let’s forward people:
Thanks to this kind of people your phone memory almost gets on the verge of blasting giving you several warnings. Yes, you got it right. They are the first to wish you a very happy and prosperous new year like every other year. It is for them your phone starts ringing at 12 am on 1st of January. Some of them also go beyond this, they start wishing you in advance adding misery to your phone memory. Sure you do have to spend a lot of time deleting the pictures and videos later but admit it, the new year never feels the same without your message box getting flooded with good wishes from your friends and other people.
Yes, they exist. Just before the new year rings in, you may notice their facebook post requesting people to refrain from sending them wishes, their Whatsapp status or Instagram stories reflect the same message. But imagine the thing that happens next, they end up getting the most of number of messages.
- The Party Planner:
They are the most enthusiastic people of the lot. They start planning for a grand party way ahead of others. Should it be a rooftop party? Or the garden will do? Maybe we should try out the new bar in the town. But as the fate it is, they end up spending the 31st night watching other people party. That sure hurts. Well, someone said never to lose hope. Next time, may be?
Well, that was my list of ‘New year’ people. Did you find yourself in the list? Or could you relate these people with some of your friends? Do you know any more type of ‘New Year’ people. If you do, we would like to know for sure. But till then, enjoy the new year and keep reading.
