The 8 People You Always See On New Years Eve

It might be a new year, but it's the same sloppy people wearing silly hats each and every time. Here are the most common people you'll see at a New Year's Eve party, perfectly illustrated by our favorite Shadowhunters.


1. The Expert Champagne Popper

Look, nobody loves that moment when it's possible to lose an eye from a flying cork. That's why you need a handy friend who knows what they're doing. 

2. The Early Sleeper

This one didn't even make it to midnight. They may have had every intention of welcoming in the new year, but sadly they fell asleep on the couch. 

3. The I-Love-You-Man Boozehound

It's not even 10 PM and they're already giving out unsolicited overly friendly hugs. 

4. The One With All The Sparkles

Somehow New Year's became the signature holiday for looking really shiny. But just know Sparkly people, that being shiny comes at a cost. You'll leave a trail of glittery goodness behind you everywhere you go and the host will be finding sparkly bits all over the house for the next year. 

5. The Guy Who Always Goes "Woooo!"

You can partly thank this person for the pounding head you'll be nursing the morning after. New Year's Eve is just one of those times where people feel like screaming for no real reason. And this guy has a serious pair of lungs on him! 

6. The Too Enthusiastic About The Silly Hats Type

Look, everyone loves an excuse to wear a crazy hat. Y'know, for like an hour or so. But this person is super into it. They dedicate hours and countless trips to the mall to hunt down the best style and color. It's cute. For like a minute. 

7. The Countdown Champion

This guy waited all night to lead the countdown to midnight. He's so super excited to yell "10!...9!..." that he might get trigger happy and do it early!

8. The Kissers

There's nothing more romantic than a mandatory kiss at a scheduled time. 

There's no denying that each and every one of us falls under one of these categories every New Year's Eve. Go on, tell us which one you are in the comments below!
