20 movies to watch on New Year's Eve

Here are 20 movies to watch on New Year’s to get you in the mood if you’re prepared to ring in 2023.

It’s amazing that 2022 is almost over. We are all undoubtedly anticipating what the new year will bring. But first, we need to ensure that this year ends on a positive way.

Maybe you’re organizing a nice night out on the town. Maybe you’re planning a dinner for an at-home group of friends and family.  Or maybe you’re like me with a dog  so afraid of fireworks that you have to spend the evening at home on the couch. To bring in the new year, I’m planning on cuddling up with my dog and watching a fun movie. To do just that, Pure wow has created an incredible list.

The start of a new year is a good opportunity to evaluate the year just ended and make plans for the one ahead. In addition to the parties and other festivities, many individuals also make resolutions for the upcoming year.

Do you know how New Year’s resolutions got started?

Making New Year’s resolutions is a tradition that dates back to ancient times.   The concept of setting goals for the upcoming year is said to have come from the Babylonians. At the beginning of each year, they made promises to their gods to assure success for the upcoming 12 months.

Resolutions for the coming year were common in ancient Rome. Their resolutions were more centred on bettering themselves as individuals when the new year began in March.

Though a lot has changed since then, making resolutions is still very common today. Most people make resolves to better themselves, such as eating better, working out more, or quitting smoking.

Grab a snack and a drink, and enjoy if you need some motivation!
