Out with the old, in with the new! It’s almost time to say goodbye to 2022 and welcome a new year.
The global pandemic has made the last few years challenging (to say the least), but 2023 offers us another chance to start fresh.
What are the best ways to celebrate New Years Eve? That depends on whether you prefer to stay in or go out. While there are plenty of New Year’s Eve parties, concerts and other events happening this weekend, such as New Year’s Eve with The Roots, Weekends with Adele and other Las Vegas residencies and Bruno Mars’ New Years’ Eve concert, staying home isn’t such a bad idea.
Watch the ball drop from New York City’s Time’s Square, indulge in live performances from your favorite artists, and catch all the hilarious (and viral) New Year’s Eve moments, without leaving the comfort of your own home.
