The New Year is almost upon us, and honestly, we cannot f*cking wait to say goodbye to 2016 forever. What a year, am I right? Greats were lost — RIP David Bowie, Prince, Carrie Fisher, and Alan Rickman — a reality star was elected president, Brangelina broke up and a large portion of the United States voted for Harambe’s ghost to take over the Oval Office. In other words, America lost its damn mind in 2016 and it might take some time for us all to gain our sanity back.
But come 2017, we’re going to try and brush our shoulders off, forge ahead and forget all of the awfulness the year had to offer.
To celebrate the start of a new year (and in the words of Elena Gilbert, a new life), we’re kicking things off the right way: with a Happy New Years photo perfect for our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram feed. Because if anyone needs to know how great our 2017 is going to be, it’s the 5,000 strangers who follow us online.
Check out the best New Years photos for your social feeds below, then move onto the champagne.
