1. There’s no doubt about it, New York City is the nerve center of the new year. In the same way that watching the game from the couch isn’t the same as sitting on the 50-yard line, seeing the ball drop on TV just doesn’t compare to the real thing. Plan a trip. Bring some friends. It’s time you put yourself in the camera frame (and made some incredible memories along the way)

  2. THE kiss of the Year! If you time it right it might be the both the last kiss for 2016 and the first kiss in 2017

  3. … and sleep all day. No one really remembers the first day of the year do they ;)

  4. What can be more iconic than dancing in the new year in a club. A massive dance floor filled to the brim with people and cage dancers moving both hearts and minds to the beat

  5. To minimize the selfishness of your New Year’s resolutions, make a 2017 bucketlist, together. Keep each other motivated and hold each other accountable for your goals.

  6. Always wanted to try Bollinger, Dom Perignon or Krug? Stop putting it off! You only live once :)

  7. Admit it, you've been thinking about it for some time now maybe even pre-planning those resolutions for weeks. Now it’s time to pull the pin and let it rip!

  8. It seems so surreal on TV! Get out and surround yourself by people from all over the world and do the countdown, together!

  9. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing. No matter how crazy the party or how sleepy you feel, watching the ball drop is an essential part of bringing in the new year - at least if you want to bring it in right. It’s the one time of the year where you feel as if you’re standing on a fault line, a foot in the future and the other in the past. Don’t blink, you might miss it.

  10. There’s bound to be something exciting close by. Plenty of cities and towns set off fireworks to bring in the new year. Even if yours doesn’t, you can build up a stash of your own to set off. A personal fireworks show to start the new year … I like the sound of the that
