Happy New Year's Eve! How crazy is it that tomorrow will officially be 2015? Where did the time go? On Wednesday night, many will celebrate with friends and family waiting for the ball to drop in New York City and then we'll all start singing that famous song that no one really understands aka "Auld Lang Syne". We all ring in the new year in different ways, but one way I suggest is by watching When Harry Met Sally . Not only is it one of the best romantic comedies of all time, but it makes for the perfect New Year's Eve movie.
Not only is it about two best friends who you can't help but laugh and cry with, but it's a feel-good rom-com that will surely put a smile on your face. And, who doesn't want to smile and laugh on this special last day of the year? I know I do. Also, if you've never seen When Harry Met Sally (seriously, what is wrong with you?!), then New Year's Eve is the perfect time to do it. It will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside and keep you in the holiday mood.
With that said, here are just a few reasons why you should crack open some bubbly with Harry Burns aka Billy Crystal and Sally Albright aka Meg Ryan.
It Incorporates Several New Year's Eve Parties
Throughout the movie, we get to watch Harry and Sally's relationship grow over the years, which also includes several New Year's Eve parties. What makes for a better real life New Year's Eve party than by watching your favorite actors celebrate at one in a movie?
Harry & Sally Explain "Auld Lang Syne"
"Auld Lang Syne" is the one song most people sing on New Year's Eve, but what the heck does it mean? Thanks to Harry and Sally, they give a brilliant explanation. Basically, it's about remembering old friends from the past and not letting them be forgotten. Be sure to watch the clip, because this is the best scene of the entire movie.
It's Great to Watch With a Group of Friends & Family
Most of us celebrate New Year's Eve with family and friends. So, if you're looking to partake in festivities, but do it in a low-key fashion, watching When Harry Met Sally is the way to do just that.
It Teaches You How to Fake You Know What
"I'll have what she's having" is probably one of the most famous movie lines ever. Meg Ryan teaching us how to fake an orgasm is classic. Also, she might even give you some pointers if you're trying to fake it with someone at your New Year Eve's party.
Because I Said So
So, why does it make the perfect New Year's Eve movie? Because I said so.
