Every year, thousands of hundreds of people swarm into Times Square in hope to celebrate the new year in person. Although you might be stuck in the cold all day before midnight arrives, fireworks celebrations, the super artists with the best performance show, those moments till the ball drops with confetti all over the sky, it was all worth it.
