Would you tell me your opinion about the following sentence?
They all stopped up until midnight to see the New Year in.
stop in = not go to bed until much later than usual
The New Year in = beginning of the New Year
Thanks for your efforts.
Could not it be understood that they all stopped any activities (like drinking alcohol, drugging themselves, shooting fireworks and arms, driving tanks, scuba driving under the ice, etc.) in order to survive until the New Year and see it?
