Out with the past, in with 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 you can celebrate New Years Eve? It all depends on whether you prefer staying in or going 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.

You can watch the ball drop from New York City’s Time Square, enjoy live performances by your favorite artists, and capture all the funny (and viral!) New Year’s Eve moments from the comfort of your home.
