When the nurses came into the Abington Memorial Hospital delivery room yelling: "Happy New Year!" Sara and Greg Stokes knew their baby was close. "We had to get pushing," said Sara Stokes, of Lafayette Hill. Five minutes later, their daughter Marguerite Lynn - Maggie Lynn - was born. Across the region, hospitals and parents were keeping close tabs to see who had delivered the first baby of 2013. Abington Memorial, where 5,000 infants are born each year, seems to have claimed the title with Maggie Lynn.

The night of no date, more devastating than any of your many nights of no date. The night of no party, not even a just-drop-by, to prove how popular and well-connected you truly are. The night of amateur drinking, when you're such an expert. The night of no regular restaurant reservations, for a regular hungry customer with nowhere else to go, like you. The night of flimsy hats, dizzy balls, antic anticipation and promises - sorry, resolutions - broken even as they're made.

Consider last New Year's Eve as practice. Now, Philadelphians, it's time for the "real millennium. " Despite the rolling zeros as the year 2000 flashed on lighted buildings and TV screens across the world last New Year's Eve, a full two thousand years will not have elapsed until 12:01 a.m. Monday, Jan 1, 2001, scholars say. That's because about 1,500 years ago, the monk who drew up our calendar calculated it on the date of the birth...

This year, New Year's Eve has fallen on Sunday - a day that many people reserve for worship and rest. So what? say area police officials. New Year's Eve is New Year's Eve is New Year's Eve. "If anything, it makes for a longer holiday," said Warminster Township Police Chief Elmer P. Clawges. "People start drinking on the Friday before instead of waiting for the night itself. " Clawges and other police officials are preparing for the capper tonight, the partying-est eve of the year and a night that typically includes traffic tie-ups, drunken drivers, domestic squabbles and loud-party complaints.

You can divide the world into two persuasions - and we don't mean capitalist and communist. Under the superstition that whatever they're doing Dec. 31 sets the tone for the next 365 days, those of the ritualistic persuasion believe in celebrating their brains out on New Year's Eve. The anti-festive faction believes that it's a night like any other except for the irritating fact that there are a lot of jerks running around tooting noisemakers and...

There's no need to race up to the Big Apple to watch the ball drop on New Year's Eve. The place to be that night is right here in the pretzel capital of the world, where some spectacular doings are scheduled at Penn's Landing. The countdown to midnight at the city's waterfront area will include a concert of holiday songs by the Neighbors in the New World Chorus, a group made up of local choirs; a 10-minute display of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge's computerized lighting system synchronized to music, and, to cap the celebration, a dazzling cascading "waterfall" under the bridge and fireworks with special effects.

Spontaneity is a great thing. But not for Mother Mary. You would think I would have known this by now, but in fact, I didn't learn it until Daughter Francesca and I went for an impromptu visit. Which was too impromptu. It all started back on New Year's Eve, when I called Mother Mary at midnight, as we do every year. God knows when we started this practice, but I've been doing it for several marriages, no matter where I am or what I'm doing on New Year's Eve. To be real, I'm never doing anything on New Year's Eve, so calling my mother is the highlight of the night.

Now that we've outlasted the end of the world, we must tend to something truly crucial: deciding where to go on the night of (and nights approaching) the Big Ball Drop. Some thoughts: The end of the . . . Walnut Room. After seven-plus years of catering to Philly's smart dancing set, the DJ-centric Walnut Room atop Alfa American Tavern closes its doors on New Year's Day. This second floor isn't done for good - Alfa males Joe Beckham and Giancarlo DiPasquale will redesign and rebrand it for heavy-duty strutting in 2013 (Alfa will stay as is)

"WHAT ARE you doing for New Year's Eve?" That's one pointed query. It ranks up there with "When are you getting married?" and "What kind of Asian are you?" on my personal list of questions I never, ever want to be asked. When I was a small child, Dec. 31 always carried with it a certain new-beginning wonderment, delivered in the form of family togetherness. In the years bridging awkward teendom and young adulthood, the last day of the year was a gilded opportunity to (attempt to)
