Even if 2012 was lackluster, the ritual of ringing in the New Year at midnight will wash all of that away for a brighter moment ahead. The holiday is the only time when overflowing glasses of Champagne, sequins, party hats, fireworks, and kissing cute strangers are perfectly acceptable all at once. To prepare for the countdown, we’ve collected images that have that same midnight magic and will give you that exuberant glow well before the 31st. Click on to see (and feel) some serious glamour.
