What’s in a name? …A lot, apparently

The end of the year often gets people thinking about love. Maybe you’re in a sickeningly sweet relationship and are counting down the days until you can dive into a passionate kiss at the close of the New Year’s Eve countdown à la The O.C season one.

The O.C

Maybe you’re done with romance for 2016 and come NYE you just want to cuddle a mate, or kiss a bottle of Moet, or a few strangers, or to do all three. 


Or perhaps your looking for love and are hoping that you can start 2017 with a new (extremely attractive) partner in crime by your side? (If this is you, you may want to pay attention to this next bit.)
