For some, New Year's Eve is the best holiday of the year. It has champagne toasts! Fresh starts! Clean slates! Possible midnight makeout sesh! But for many, it's the absolute worst: terrible weather, no cabs, drunken crowds, long lines and a lot of pressure to find a great party. Plus, watching twenty-something girls in four-inch heels puking in the gutter is no way to kick off a new year. Do you find New Year's Eve awesome or wildly overrated? 🍾 🎉

Other people hate it though—many will not even venture outside because they find it so awful to be amongst drunken celebrants. As Global Grind observed:

New Year’s Eve is always severely expensive, extremely mediocre, or sadly boring – never in-between.

As Complex observed:

The patron to bartender ratio is typically 500 to one. The night’s expectations are unreasonably high....all for a 10 second countdown and a stupid ball drop. For other holidays, you get presents, a turkey feast, or a fuckton of candy. But, New Year's Eve is just a costly, sloppy mishmash of d-bags and vomit-soaked toilet seats. NYE can GTFOH.

But you don't have to get drunk or even go out—some people choose to start the year with meditation. The symbolism of a clean slate and a fresh start really appeals to many.
