Goodbye 2017, Hello 2018. How is this even real? In my head, it's still like 2016... I don't understand how time has been going by so fast. Especially this year, 2017 flew by in the blink of an eye. Now it's 2018 and that means it's time I repeat the same New Years Resolutions for the 10th year in a row. #Amazing. Before we get into the topic of New Years Resolutions, let's highlight some New Years Eve traditions that you may or may not have heard of.
1. 12 Grapes.
2. Yellow Underwear.
A myth or not, but sources say that wearing yellow underwear on New Year's Eve also brings you luck with wealth in the upcoming New Year.

Fifty seconds before the clock hits midnight, we are come together and begin the countdown with nothing but smiles and excitement.

We pop open the bottle of champagne and make our ways around the room giving our loved ones hugs and kisses.

Happy New Years!!
