The noise, the crowds, the debauchery. If you’re like me and think going out on New Year’s Eve isn’t such a good time and rather be curled up on your couch in your jammies watching the ball drop from the safety of your own home, good news!  There are lots of specials to keep the party going at home. Here’s what to watch when it comes time to count down to 2013.
