The 21 Things That Happen At Every New Year’s Eve Party

2 minute Read


If 2016 were a bottle of wine, it would be a beautiful Cabernet that you’ve been aging for years in your basement, only to open it and take a sip of vinegar. This year has been the literal worst and the only way to cope with the hot mess commonly known as 2016 is to pop open a case of Champagne and have a New Year’s Eve party to remember. After all, it’s better to end the year with a bang and start fresh come January 1.

Whether you’re hosting this year or heading over to a close friend’s house, here’s what to look forward to at this year’s NYE rager:

Everybody will say they’re going to bring a specific dish to share — none of them will actually bring said dish.

That one girl will drink WAY too much sparkling rosé.

nye_2
That one guy who keeps beefing up his resolution to get in shape will continues to inhale cookies from the dessert table.

nye_3
If the party is collaboratively making dinner, something will go wrong because tipsy chefs often forego using a timer.

nye_4
Somebody will make moves to go out to a bar or see some type of object “drop.”

nye_5
After arriving at said location to see said object mechanically lower from the sky, everyone will realize that they should’ve watched it on TV.

nye_6
Red wine will be spilled on a carpet.

nye_7
Wine will also be spilled on someone’s new shirt.

nye_8
The super lovey-dovey couple will hype the shit out of their first NYE kiss.

nye_9
Only to miss it because one of them will be in the bathroom during the countdown.

nye_10
The #SingleSquad will make a drinking game out of people posting wedding photos on their Facebook feeds.

nye_11
Thus, the entire #SingleSquad will ring in the New Year by making out with a bottle of Champagne.

nye_12
Those two friends who TOTALLY have chemistry will kiss at midnight.

nye_13
Only to realize the next morning how heavily their “bubbly goggles” impacted their decisions.

nye_14
Somebody will have a close call with an illegal firework.

nye_15
But then brush it off by knocking back a shot of tequila.

nye_16
A political debate will occur. Nobody will win.

nye_17
Everyone will stay up super late even though they’re internally screaming how tired they are.

nye_18
Somebody will break out some kind of spirit that under normal circumstances nobody would ever touch (hello, peppermint schnapps!), but because it’s NYE everybody will decide to go wild over it.

nye_19
Brunch plans will be made. However, those plans are extremely fragile as nobody will be able to beat the upcoming hangover.

nye_20
Half of the party will write off NYE parties forever and the other half will already be planning next year’s shindig.

nye_21

Above all, everyone will do their best to make sure 2017 doesn’t completely suck.
