Celebrating New Year's Eve may be more chill this year as you opt to watch the ball drop at home instead of toasting with your besties at a crowded bar at midnight. An evening spent in your pajamas will be the perfect time to reflect on all the memories of the past year as you scroll through your camera roll. Post the gems you find and pair them with Instagram captions for throwback New Year's Eve pictures to spread the good vibes and times on your feed.

Nostalgia can put you in your feels and make you wish time travel was a real thing. It can also make you laugh, daydream, or feel so at peace. By posting a recap of the year you had, you’ll be sharing that cozy feeling with all your friends who were there with you along the way. That #TBT recap will be easier to post with the right New Year’s pic quotes. Since you’re choosing to have a more low-key NYE with just your roomies, you could even post some new year captions for pictures of the last time you all went out in sparkling jumpsuits and glittery makeup lewks.

Looking back on the champagne you sipped with your SO on a beach or ringing in last New Year's on a ski trip with all your friends can feel pretty similar to traveling. The best part? You don't have to spend money on a plane ticket, pack a suitcase, or leave your home in order to relive these experiences. All you need are some New Year's Eve photo captions to travel into your past memories with a throwback post on Instagram. Any of the New Year’s Eve pics you’ve got will pair perfectly with any of these 40 New Year’s captions to let the party vibes and good times be re-lived on the 'Gram.
