10 Ways Under-21s Can Ring In The New Year

We all wonder what we can do to celebrate the new year when we are under 21.

10 Ways Under-21s Can Ring In The New Year

When it comes time to celebrate the new year, often those under 21 struggle to figure out what they should do. Coming from a young adult like me, here are a few things those under 21 can do while still celebrating the new year!

1. Bowling

Often times bowling allies will have a celebration for the new year. With this, you can get a group of friends together, bowl, play arcade games, and celebrate the new year with a toast of "sparkling juice".

2. Chi-Town Rising

Those who want to get a group of friends together in the city of Chicago can! Chicago has their very own celebration for the new year. It is a festival event where you can listen to music, watch the fireworks from navy pier, and simply spend time with your friends

3. Go out see the ZooLights

Zoos have different light shows during the Christmas times. You can simply go walk around the zoo and see the different light shows they have and admire that theirs might look better than yours. (That is okay.)

4. Window Shopping

For places that are open on new years eve, you can simply go to the mall and go window shopping. Look at different outfits that we all wish we can pull off but often times know we cannot. This is also a good time to simply question and make fun of different outfits/clothing items.

5. Get your celebration going

You can always have a little party with some friends at home. You watch the ball drop and make a toast to the new year, play games, hang out, laugh.

6. Go to a restaurant and watch the ball drop

Those who are in NYC and under 21 can go to different restaurants and watch the ball drop and some even have their own parties that you can attend.

7. Karaoke

Some places with have a Karaoke night or you can simply get one going at home. Get a group of friends together and watch each other make a fool of themselves and get a good laugh out of it.

8. Photo Booth

If malls are open, go around dressed in crazy outfits and take pictures in the different photo-booths as a celebration of the new year. Start the year off with a funny memory.

9. Game Night

You can always celebrate while doing a game night at home. Simply get a group of your friends together watch the ball drop and play some games. Everyone loves a game night now and then.

10. Count Down Bags

You can have someone go around and hide different bags for the hour leading up to the new year that you and your friends have to go find every hour. In each bag will be a surprise or a gift. It gives you guys something to do while waiting for the ball to drop.

These are only a few things I would recommend. If you look online for activities to do for the new year in your area there will be much more activities planned. Have a great new year!

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Sinning in Las Vegas

Be careful what you do and post


Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.

National Coffee Day is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than to remember why it's so amazing?

10 Reasons Coffee Is The Best In Honor Of National Coffee Day

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
