MAKE A WISH FOR 2015 AND BE A PART OF THE NEW YORK NEW YEAR CELEBRATIONS

While visiting New York we headed into the Times Square Museum and Visitor Center.  Being girly girls AJ and I were immediately drawn to the colourful display on the wall under the title “Hopes & Dreams”.  There, written on hundreds of pieces of confetti paper, were people’s hopes and dreams for 2015.

I’m hopeless in these situations.  I got totally caught up in reading the messages.  In the past I would have been writing wishes for BJ to sit, walk or talk so I got teary at the heartfelt hopes of people regarding health and family.  But then, just when I thought I was going to come unstuck I found one that made me laugh out loud.  “I wish for Miley to stop twerking.”  It is probably a waste of a wish but hey, who am I to judge what is important to others.

All of these pieces of confetti will be added to the one ton of confetti which will flutter down on the crowd gathered in Times Square to celebrate the New Year.

We wrote our wishes down and added them to the wall and this year we will be watching with a vested interest in the New Year’s celebrations in New York.  It is a really lovely way of including everyone in one of the biggest parties in the world on New Year’s Eve.

If you can’t get to Times Square you can still take part by heading to the Virtual Wishing Wall.  Just submit your wish and it will be printed on to “official Times Square New Year’s Eve confetti” and added to the others. Times Square Museum and Visitor Center

As a side note, the Times Square Museum and Visitor Center has a good unisex disabled bathroom facility.  You just need to ask for the key from the information desk (asking for a key equals nice and clean)

The Times Square Museum and Visitors Center is open 7 days a week 8am-8pm

For more details head to their website

What would your wish for 2015 be?  Sensible or silly it doesn’t matter, I will not judge.

  1. I didn’t know about that virtual wishing wall, what a great idea ^_^ as for me, I wish 2015 brings me Love and Health, I’m a bit short of them these days… anyway, it seems that according to chinese horoscope I should fare well because it’s the year of the goat, and according to this prediction http://lascartasdelavida.com/chinese_horoscope/predictions2015_snake.php snakes like me should fare well in 2015, specially taking into account my time and date of birth 🙂
