Have a cruise ship positioned west of the International Date Line on December 31st. After midnight the ship heads east to be on the other side of the IDL. So the next night it will be New Years Eve again.

       I have often pondered why no one has ever tried to stay the same age, (ala the fountain of youth sort of thingy), by living their life on a jet plane, that goes back and forth from time zone to time zone.   

       I'd do it but I'm afraid of heights.

       You should also be able to celebrate Christmas twice. This means 2X the presents and 2X the cookies!! Woohoo!!

       Bliss, that may work if the guy is always travelling west to east. if they were at one of the poles, they could just walk around to get the same effect. Has anyone ever posted that fishboner?
