RICHMOND, Va. — It doesn’t matter if you plan to stay in Richmond for New Year’s Eve — your wish for the New Year can still make it to Times Square in New York City.

Each year, people from around the planet include their wishes for the New Year on pieces of official Times Square New Year’s Eve confetti.

Whether it’s a personal goal, a dream for the future or doing something for the very first time, these wishes will be added to over a ton of confetti that float down at midnight onto the revelers gathered in Times Square in celebration of the 2016.

You can be part of the event by sharing your New Year’s wish online or on Twitter and Instagram, using #TSqNYEwish. It will be added to the thousands of others released above Times Square at midnight on New Year’s Eve for all the world to see!
