intro

New Years eve is just around the corner, and while we’ve been ready to party for weeks, there are a few facts to get you ready for the big night. Just don’t rattle all these off to your date. That’s weird.

1. The first New Year was celebrated 4,000 years by the ancient Babylonians.

2. It’s tradition to ring in New Year’s with family and friends because the first people you see will either give you good luck or bad luck. So make sure to keep friends close and foes very far away

3. More vehicles are stolen on New Year’s Day than any other holiday, statistics from the National Insurance Crime Bureau revealed.

4. Time Square New Year’s Eve Ball was first dropped in 1907 after there was a fireworks ban. Back then, a 700-pound ball embellished with 25-watt bulbs made of iron and wood was dropped. Now, however, it weighs 11,875 pounds, is 12 feet in diameter and is adorned with 2,668 Waterford crystals.

5. In Italy, people wear red underwear on New Year’s Day to bring good luck all year long.
