Around 10 million Britons say New Year's Eve is the "most depressing" night of the year, according to a study which also revealed that most people will be in bed by 10.38 pm.
Four in 10 adults will refuse to celebrate the start of 2013, up 10 per cent on last year. They will shun the parties and go to bed at their normal time – with many blaming economic gloom for their cheap night in, the study by hotel firm Travelodge found.
According to the study, one in 10 say they "feel exhausted" after Christmas and just want to catch up on their sleep before returning to work, the Daily Express reported.
Residents of York are most likely to sleep early, followed by those in Cardiff and Cambridge.
Just 18 per cent of people will go out to a party tonight, with London, Edinburgh and Birmingham set to be the hot spots.
Most people are broke, tired, and feeling toxic after the Christmas blow-out, and inspiration and motivation are at an all-time low, said Life coach Carole Ann Rice.
