You're on a different time zone than the rest of us? I'm having my New Year's Day open house on Saturday the first....
My old karate dojo didn't have class on either New Year's Day or New Year's Eve...the dojo was closed then as it was for most holidays. We did have a special New Year's class, though, which was never announced: it might be the last regularly scheduled class before New Year, or the first one after New Year, or some other class more or less around New Year. It made it much harder to dodge out if you were looking to avoid it...and this class was animal.
