The merry month of December is finally upon us, which means we're about to be up to our eyeballs in candy canes, Christmas presents and fugly festive sweaters ... and fugly festive sweater nails for the really adventurous.
While visions of sugarplums may be dancing in your head at the moment, it's important to make sure that you don't lose sight of the biggest holiday bash of the year: New Year's Eve, of course!
Yep, there's no better way to send off 2016 than dancing the night away at an epic New Year's Eve rager.
Everyone knows that the slate get's wiped clean after the clock strikes midnight, so blacking out and making a myriad of bad decision is clearly the ultimate way to go out with a bang.
No really: If you actually remember watching the ball drop, you're not doing NYE right.
If you're wondering which destinations are the perfect place to celebrate, looks no further.
