We like to think that in the past, people were more orderly and dignified. After all, it's hard to imagine our grandparent's generation being rowdy and young.
But in reality, people have always loved a good party, and New Year's Eve is no exception. Staying up all night with your friends, having a few drinks, and making a lot of noise at midnight never goes out of style, and these vintage photographs show just how wild New Year's used to get.
People back then really knew how to throw a party! Keep an eye out and see if you recognize any of your ancestors in these photographs.
