This needs to change!!
A new study shows that New Year's Eve isn't just one of the most dangerous holidays for drinking and driving, but it's also the day when teens drink the most, in relation to any other holiday.
AND, it's one of the worst days of the year for alcohol-related crashes and deaths for teen drivers.
What's even more worse is that according to a study by SADD, Students Against Destructive Decisions, teens know that NYE is the most dangerous time of the year to drive, but it's also the holiday when they most frequently drive under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
So frustrating! Teens (and most adults!!) need to know how dangerous it is to drive under the influence PERIOD!
Please stay safe out there. Do NOT drink and drive. Find a designated driver, call a cab, or find a service that offers transportation on the holidays. You could be saving a life.

"One of the best parts of growing up in a small town was being able to pop fireworks. Two times a year, July 4th and New Years, we waited with crinkled bills in hand to go buy our Black Cats, sparklers and roman candles.
Another great part of growing up in a small town, is that our parents seemed to not mind that a bunch of kids were running around in the pasture with open flames, lighting fireworks. Well, as we all know well, things aren’t always that carefree. For starters, I don’t think I’ve ever seen fireworks sold in the city, much less kids running around with matches and poppers in hand; obviously for good reason.
While I do miss those memories, I’ve started to create a few of my own. New Year’s is a great time for rejuvenation. Without sounding too mushy, I do spend the 31st of December thinking about my life, my marriage and my children. We usually spend the holidays in Texas, which allows for us to ring in the New Year with my extended family. The 31st finds us around a campfire, roasting marshmallows on sticks that each kid has to find on their own…(part of the thrill).
We always make a stew that is washed down with champagne, while the kid’s kick back with their sparkling juice. Dinner is followed with an annual hayride under the stars, while covered in blankets. Then, the pinnacle of the night, for ALL the kids, is that they get to stay up until MIDNIGHT…gasp!!! I can remember the thrill of fighting Mr. Sandman, when I was a kid. I would try so hard to stay awake for the ball to drop with very little success. Now it’s fun to watch my kids deny their fatigue and fight through the night waiting to usher in another year. Even though the kids put up a heck of a fight, we always find ourselves counting down the clock with very few of them awake. After a whirlwind of kisses and well wishes, we add another log to the fire, pour a celebratory glass of champagne and think about how lucky we are to be with our family.
May 2012 be your YEAR!!"

No, Jessica Biel isn't knocked up in real life. The actress plays a mommy-to-be in the upcoming Gary Marshall flick, New Years Eve.
According to Jess, being pregnant isn't all that bad!
While guesting on a popular British talk show Biel told host, Graham Norton she enjoyed acting pregnant. She says:
"It was so good! I had a [pregnant belly] suit on that went from here to here (across belly) and I had the biggest boobs that hung to here… And I ate whatever I wanted — it was great!"
Wait, you ate whatever you wanted? Does she know she wasn't really preggers? LOL!
