Times Square? Have no idea.

Good luck. I know some New Year's good luck traditions but none of them mention "first thing in the morning." I dunno? Sneeze?

We went to a party at friends' house.

I don't know about legends, but New Year's Eve in Scotland, known as Hogmanay, is pretty legendary.

There are all kinds of New Year's customs and superstitions. From the the "eating black-eyed peas and stewed tomatoes" thing (yuk) to believing that misfortune will befall you if the first person over your threshold in the new year isn't a man. Ah, well.
