This person has a point. Only kiss women on New Year's Eve! The future is female anyway. You don't want to be on the wrong side of history, do you?

2. New Year, New Me

"New year, new me" is the rallying cry of self-improvers everywhere. But this is definitely the best way to use it. Yeah, "new year, new me." The new me is like, 75 percent Dorito.

3. "See you next year"

This is definitely the most common and worst joke you hear on New Year's Eve, so I don't blame him for his response. Anyone who says "See you next year" or "See you next decade" to you on December 31, 2021 doesn't deserve to be your friend.

Honestly, anyone who maintains a healthy eating and exercise regimen from January to March deserves some sort of award. That's three whole months! Usually, it takes like, a week for these things to crumble.
