Celebrating New Year's Eve will be different this year, considering you'll watch the ball drop at home instead of toasting with your besties at a crowded bar at midnight. But, your chill evening spent in your pjs will be the perfect time to reflect on all the memories 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. Especially during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongly advise to stay at home for New Year's Eve and only gather with people in your immediate household, nostalgia can feel incredibly comforting.

Looking back on the champagne you sipped with your SO on a beach last NYE 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. On New Year's Eve, take a little time to travel into your past memories and post a throwback on Instagram with one of these captions for throwback NYE pictures. The party vibes and good times deserve to be re-lived on the 'gram.
