New Year’s Eve is here and the time for exciting motives is upon us. If you’re like the majority of people, you’re probably sitting either hoping to get invited to a last minute party, or desperately trying to choose between several invitations. Not to worry, here at Cannadelics we have all the information that should help you out.

We will be going through the top 10 best New Year’s Eve motives, as well as the perfect drugs to take if you’re that way inclined. Remember, NYE doesn’t need to be a night full of stress and FOMO, find your people, find your happy place and find your ideal substances – the rest will sort itself out. Happy new year!

The Importance of New Year’s Eve

For some reason, New Year’s Eve matters. Whether it be culturally or socially, the end of the year seems to be a time everyone either dreads or looks forward to. New Year’s Eve, also known as NYE, is a cultural holiday that is celebrated around the world on December 31st. It marks the end of the current year and the beginning of the new year. Bring on 2023!

It has been celebrated for thousands of years in various forms, with many different cultures and traditions. In ancient Rome, the festival of Kalends marked the first day of the year and was celebrated with gift-giving and partying. In many cultures, the end of the year is a time to reflect on the past 365 days and set goals for the future. In a sense, it’s the perfect time to end one chapter and begin another – even if it means basically nothing. We as humans like the image of a year ending and another starting, don’t we?

Some believe that NYE is a time for family and reconciliation, whilst others believe it’s the perfect time to buy a pinger and go to a club. Of course others would rather do literally nothing, hide under their bed sheets, and wait for their Instagram feed’s to stop posting about it. However you like to spend your NYE, make sure you’re as happy as genuinely possible. Bear in mind, sometimes this doesn’t necessarily mean doing what everyone else is doing. Let’s take a look at the top 10 motives on the last day of the year. 

Top 10 Motives on NYE

This list attempts to cater to as many people as possible. Whilst some may want to get black out drunk, buy a gram of ketamine, and forget the night ever happened – others may want to sit under the stars and write down their resolutions. Whatever your taste, there should be something for you here. As previously mentioned, be true to yourself. Don’t feel the need to follow the rest. Do what you want to do. Here are ten of the best things to do on NYE:

1 – House Party

House parties are the most nostalgic NYE motive you can choose. Remember those youthful years, drinking alcohol for the first time, having your first new year’s kiss? House parties used to be the ideal thing to do on the last day of the year, but somewhere along the way they got taken over by club nights. Perhaps consider bringing them back. Attend a houseparty – or even hop between a few of them – and take a trip down memory lane. 

2 – Fireworks

Many cities around the world have spectacular fireworks displays, and it can be a great way to ring in the new year. Some people’s evenings revolve around the fireworks at midnight, whilst other people basically forget all about it. How about attempting the former this year? Try finding the best display near you, buy tickets or find a free watching spot, go by yourself or find some mates, and enjoy. Consider maybe bringing some psychedelics too if you’re feeling up for it – beers too of course – fireworks can look insane with a bit of help from hallucinogens. 

3 – Big Event

It’s probably the more common motive but, darn it, why fix what ain’t broke? A club night, rave or night out is definitely an ideal thing to do on new year’s. It takes the pressure off needing to host or find a houseparty, instead you can bring a group of your friends to a place where you know there will be loads of other people. All you need to do is decide what kind of music you want to be listening to as the new year approaches. Is it techno? House? Jazz? Perhaps you’d rather listen to some pop bangers. Whatever you’re into, find a night that caters to your ear preferences and dance the night away. This is where the substances may also come in handy. There’s nothing like coming up on an ecstasy pill when the clock strikes midnight.

4 – Host

What about hosting instead? Some people like to be in control of their NYE, so why not host a small gathering or party yourself. This way you can decide on the music, the food, the people – basically everything. It also means you’ll never be too far away from your own bed if the night gets a little too much for you. Hosting is an understated and underrated way of spending your new years. 

5 – Take a Trip

If you want to do something more adventurous on NYE, consider taking a trip. This could be a short weekend getaway to a nearby city or a longer trip to a destination further away. Sometimes it’s better to just get the hell away from everything and everyone at new years. Perhaps you don’t consider the place you live that beautiful anyway. Why not get away? A NYE spent out of your usual habitat can make it especially memorable. I hear Goa’s great this time of year. 

6 – Chilled Event

Maybe you’re wanting something a little more relaxed, but you’re still looking to leave the house. Not to worry, chilled events exist on NYE. Many local venues, such as museums, zoos, and aquariums, have special organised events. Even a small intimate gig can be a nice way to spend your evening. Sometimes the thought of making a big deal out of the night can be exhausting, so perhaps a more chilled event – with fewer people – may be up your street. 

7 – Pub

The pub may sound like an old fashioned way of spending your NYE but, hey, everyone loves a good public house. Pubs usually stay open much later on the last day of the year and it’s often that the best part of an evening is the drinks at a pub anyway. Why not just extend that part of the night? Go to a local pub with your mates, sink some pints, reminisce old stories, and get back at a reasonable time. Nothing wrong with that. 

8 – Self-care Day

Taking care of yourself on New Year’s Eve is vital. It can be a day full of joy, but it can just as easily be filled with anxiety and loneliness. If you prefer a more low-key NYE celebration, consider attending a yoga or meditation class. If that seems a little out there, then just have a day of self care. Take yourself to a film, eat nice food, write in your journal, have a massage, have a bubble bath – whatever you feel you want to do. Perhaps consider turning your phone off too, this will help you block out the outside world. It can be anxious-fuelling when you see all the things your friends are doing on NYE. Block that stuff out because today is about you. 

9 – Romantic Night In

If you’re happily in love with someone, then perhaps there’s no point going crazy on NYE. Maybe all you actually want is a night in with your respected other. Surprise your lover with some amazing food, some games, candles and maybe even some sexy antics. Why bother going out and spending loads of money when you can have the best night of your life spending it with the person you love. 

10 – Film Night

If you want to stay in on NYE, consider having a movie marathon with your friends or family. Choose a theme, such as romantic comedies or action movies, and settle in for a cosy night at home. If you’ve never watched the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy in one night, then you haven’t truly lived. Also consider adding Harry Potter or Star Wars to that list too. There are a great deal of incredible movies out there – don’t feel that a movie night on NYE is a bad motive. In fact, in many ways, it’s the best and most enjoyable. 

Drugs on NYE

The use of Drugs on NYE certainly spikes. Suddenly people want the perfect substance to aid their perfect night. Well, the 4 most common substances include: 

  • Ketamine
  • Cocaine
  • MDMA
  • Cannabis

Alcohol of course counts too, but that’s sort of a given. If you’re looking to add some sparkle to your New Year’s Eve motives, try pairing one of these substances up with the list above. Remember, use responsibly. The excitement of NYE can easily get out of control so it’s important to always know your limits. But when recreational drugs are used right on NYE, it can be the greatest feeling ever. Enjoy.


This was a list of 10 of the potential best New Year’s Eve motives. No matter how you choose to celebrate the evening, the most important thing is to enjoy yourself. This doesn’t mean doing what everyone else wants you to do, but to instead listen to yourself. You’ve lived another year. Congratulations. Happy New Year!
