I am curious, as I don't know this kissing business. What does it mean?

On New Year's Eve, when the clock strikes midnight, it has become a tradition to turn to the person next to you and kiss them. This has been turned into a REALLY BIG DEAL in American popular culture. Episodes of stupid TV sitcoms have had plots centered on who kisses who at midnight. If a person is single, or on shaky ground in a relationship, the importance of this gets inflated to the extreme, and it is ridiculous. At a New year's Eve party, people will try and position themselves to be kissed by the person they want to kiss them, and hide from people they don't want kissing them. The whole concept is asinine.

Because my family is HUGE and local, I literally end up with the 12 days of christmas. My husband and I have only exchanged Christmas presents once. Part of the reason for this is because both of our birthdays fall close to the holiday as well, so we just use our birthdays as our holidays, and devote Christmas to seeing family. I have been wondering what I will do with my bf around the holidays. I've explained to him that I don't plan on seeing anyone but family around the holiday itself, and that I don't do presents (also because I'm broke) but I have planned to go to a Christmas party with him. I'm glad we at least get to do something holiday-related. That means a lot to me.
