New Year’s Eve is always a joyous occasion for many families and friends. It’s the time of year they can gather together with their loved ones and usher in the New Year with fun and laughter. And in the 2011 film “New Year’s Eve“, these actors and actresses do exactly that and show us just how special this holiday can be!
With a star-studded cast comprised of Robert De Niro, Halle Berry, Sarah Jessica Parker, Katherine Heigl, Ashton Kutcher, Michelle Pfeifer, Zac Efron, Jon Bon Jovi, and many more, this movie highlights the best parts of celebrating the New Year.
Even though it debuted 7 years ago, its message of love and hope still resonates with us today. In fact, we’ve gathered 5 activities from the film that will not only allow us to reminisce on the blessings of the past year but will also give us a head start on our expectations this coming New Year.
Check them out:
Attend spectacular countdown parties
There’s no better way to celebrate the New Year than by attending some of the most spectacular parties the season has to offer. Whether it’d be a countdown party in a bar or a glorious fireworks display by the bay, it’s good to commemorate this coming year with a celebration you’ll always remember!
Complete your bucket list for the year
The year is technically not yet over until the clock strikes at midnight; so take this opportunity to finish your bucket list for the past year. It may be as simple as finishing the last book on your reading list or as complex as getting the highest score on your favorite online game — it’s great to cap off the year with an accomplishment you can definitely be proud of!
Take more risks
In the film, Sam (Josh Duhamel) searches for the woman with whom he had a brief yet serendipitous moment with. And by the end of the film, viewers will see the positive outcome of his efforts in searching for his “soulmate”.
Much like Sam, we should be open to taking more risks especially when it comes to our interpersonal development. Although it’s unlikely that we’ll find our “true love” today, we can take risks in other aspects of our lives.
Be open to love
The movie showcases multiple romances that’ll teach you to keep your heart open for love. Who knows, you might even find the person you’re destined to be with at midnight?
Make time for those who mean the most to you
Lastly, the movie teaches us that this holiday would not be complete without the people who’ve shown us their unconditional love and care for us. So, take this time to really show your loved ones how you cherish and appreciate them.
