There's something magical about counting down to midnight with the rest of the world. As you watch different countries ring in the New Year, you anxiously await your own fresh start. New Year's Eve is an opportunity for collective celebration, no matter how you choose to honor the holiday.

But for many, New Year's is just a mess of glitter and champagne. The holiday becomes much less about a fresh start when you begin New Year's Day hungover!

New Year's Eve has turned into such a massive party that people are even afraid to be on the roads after the clock strikes midnight. No one wants an encounter with a drunk driver or mobs of people trying to get back home. The whole holiday is a hassle.

New Year's Eve is the perfect exclamation point to another great holiday season. After Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas, there's nothing better than ringing in the new year with your closest friends and family. You can look back on the previous year while simultaneously looking forward to what's to come.

As Bustle's Kat George puts it, New Year's Eve is a holiday "all about you." You can wear whatever you want, kiss whoever you want, eat whatever you want and celebrate however you want. What could be better?

Who can possibly even get into a bar for a toast and a midnight kiss with the New Year's crowds? There's so much pressure on New Year's Eve to go out and celebrate with your friends. Every bar is hosting some sort of special or party, so it shouldn't be hard, right? Wrong. As Complex's Sean Evans so eloquently puts it:

The open bar looks like the floor of the New York Stock Exchange during a 500-point plunge, with panicked guests stacked 10 deep and screaming incoherently. Clubs are very calculated with the way they handle New Year's Eve, and that $200 ticket gives you the privilege of battling it out for the occasional water-down vodka drink.
Don't make the night bigger than it is, because New Year's Eve is just St. Patrick's Day with a formal dress code.
