New Year’s Eve Wishing Wall

New Years Eve Wishing Wall

Every Year New York City hosts its infamous Rockin’ New Years Eve’ show, this year we celebrate the end of 2023 and the beginning of 2024! But what many people don’t know is that every year the confetti that falls to the ground at 12:00 p.m. of January 1st, happens to actually be wishes, resolutions, and wise words from people all around the world. People who visit New York around the time of December 1st through December 29th, can visit the Planet Fitness center located in Manhattan, where you can write on the confetti, adding to the collection of (roughly) 2,000 pounds of confetti that falls to the ground celebrating the crystal ball dropping on the very first night of the new year. Others who are not visiting the area can go to the website and electronically write your “New Year, New Me” words and wishes that are to be printed and then added to the huge pile. Get ready for 2024 lancers!

Submit your goals, dreams, resolutions, etc. online by using the website NYE Wishing Wall | Times Square NYC and be sure to tag @LakesLedger on Instagram and #ConfettiWish¬†to have your words for 2024 submitted on our page as well as the Rockin’ New Years Eve’s!
