A New Years Eve to Remember

About 9 or 10 years ago, we hosted an on line video chat room.  Our room became very popular because we took strict control and kept it fun.  It was a safe place for people to come and relax and talk to other people.  The video aspect made it a lot of fun and resulted in some hysterical laughter at times.  We met people from all over the world.  We even had a band from Italy playing live music in our room at times.  A woman from Australia met a man from New Jersey in our room and eventually got married.

One of our best New Years celebrations ever was in this room.  Because we had people from all time zones in the United States and many others from around the world, we were able to celebrate New Years for someone each hour of the night.  Yes, it was a long night.  But one I will never forget.  I miss that room.


  1. It was fun hosting the room. Several Facebook friends would come in. We had a hilarious Halloween party, and introduced some people to Halloween that didn't have that tradition in their own country. It's too bad that something so fun should disappear, but it did. Now, we just have memories!

  2. Halloween was great. Seeing people dress up that had never heard of halloween and seeing them have such a good time was fantastic!

  3. Why don't you do it again?? That sounds fun!
