with friends at New Year 2018 Party

i am away from my home due to my studies.
i am from Pakistan but i celebrated my new year 2018 with my friends of hostel at my University in Germany


That is what I would call a great celebration. That must have felt so awesome there. I can only imagine the energy felt, by looking at the pictures. Super job on the picts too.


i am glad, you found it awesome

Hoping you haven't chosen the winning photo yet @cryptoctopus!

Here's the fireworks at the KLCC Petronas Towers, Malaysia, viewed directly from our room at the Traders Hotel, cool right? :)


And this is my #1 goal for 2018!

Instead of just giving it a quick look,
I see Steem replacing Facebook,
And coming across a lot of Twitter,
Would be a lot of Steem content, a whole load of chatter,
I foresee Steem here, Steem there, Steem everywhere,
Daily usage with tremendous fanfare!


That is a real awesome picture. Great job.


Thanks @naturalguy, just lucky to be at the right place at the right time! :)

Hey, @cryptoctopus, I am from New Delhi, India.
I am celebrating my New year in here.

Awesome photo!




Thank You very much dear @cryptoctopus.
I really appreciate it.

celebrating new year with my friends
I'm in india (chandigarh)
my goal for 2018 is 100k steems in my wallet



Now that's a great picture! I wish you the best of luck with your 100k goal!


I ended my 2017 in Springfield, Ohio, with my wife's extended family. Music is a big part of life for the Dyes so we always end the year with the song Auld Lang Syne.

Five of the Dyes are in a Folk/Americana band who recorded the song several years ago, you can check it out here.

My goal for 2018 is to spend my free time in more productive ways. I find myself browsing Reddit or Youtube in any free time instead working on projects that I "never have time for."


Very Cool!


I wish this thing had the ability to click on to expand the photo/pic.

I'm sorry that you're lonely on New Year's, but I'm in the states, and I'll be all alone too.

New Year's Eve 2017.jpg

Happy New Year @crytoctopus, my husband son and I spent New Year's Eve on Jomtiem Beach in Pattaya, Thailand. There were many people setting off lanterns, fireworks and enjoying the forthcoming year by the sea.

My goal for 2018 is to be kind to others such as family, friends and the less needy, a few cents to you can be a whole lot more to them! There was a homeless boy on the beach, he came and sat with us, my husband gave him some sparklers and candy, the smile on his face was beaming. Happy new Year to all and I wish you can achieve whatever you set your minds to! Sawadee Ka (Hello) from Thailand!

Receiving the new year in front of the campfire with my family while we camp in the Kama Meru camp in the Canaima National Park of Venezuela.

My main goal for 2018 is to boost my brand of special coffees @cafe4d and open my bakery and coffee shop!
Thank you por el upvote @cryptoctopus

Sunset Nam Rong2.jpg

We celebrated New Years' Eve on Had Nam Rang Beach, Sattahip Thailand. You can see my wife gazing out to the horizon on the water's edge!

My 2018 goal is to spend more time connecting with my family and friends. These people are priceless and no amount of money can substitute the love and care that we should show to these people, people who will always be there for you, through thick and thin, through wealth and through poverty. They have always been there for me. I would like them to know, I will always be there for them no matter how far away we are.

Happy New Year Everyone, I hope this is a great year for you all.

From Quito-Ecuador, I wish you Happy New Year 2018, together with my husband. May the Almighty God grant you health and prosper in everything you do, just as your souls prosper. May we achieve our dreams and our desired goals.


happy new year from shelter :)

(2) Am posting from the South-eastern part of Nigeria, specifically, Enugu State. My new year eve was awesome, was in a youth empowerment summit.

(3) My goal for 2018 is to sensitize youths in the rural or local areas on the need to be more productive than depending on the government for white collar jobs.

This is my goal.

Happy new year from Tunisia. I wish that i will reach 1000SP.

I spent my new year's eve in the church. The aim was to usher in the new year to the hands of God. This picture was taken at about 11.50pm (gmt+1) . The light from the candle serves to symbolize purity and a chance for new beginnings.

I spent my new year's eve in Edo State, Nigeria.

I hope this post qualifies and meets your standards @cryptoctopus.. I wish you all a happy new year.

This new year I celebrated with my girlfriend and had time to visit Santa Claus:) All happened in Belarus, city Gomel. But then it became very hot, because the lit up Christmas Tree...

Happy new year everybody :) The Christmas is very nice for me :)

Its celebration time to our family with delicious food.
I'm from Sri Lanka of the south Asian Island.
I have some goal its will increase my steem power in this 2018.

Peaceful and prosperous new year to you!!!

Celebrating New Year's Eve in Key West! Remember, going to a nude beach without getting naked is like reading Steemit without posting. My goal for 2018 is to make more quality posts. Happy New Year!


You voyeur, you. lol Can I go too?

excellent work and nice to help others and make chance to show there ability

I am mall hopping in Delhi on New Years Eve
I have been a shy person. Goal for 2018 is to make a lot of new friends Specially here on Steemit

Happy new year image

It's about 1:45 AM in Pakistan and I still hear some fireworks. I usually don't go outside and party on new year's eve and same routine this year.

I am busy in creating a small kingdom/empire on my laptop, so I guess I am out!

celebrating new year my friends
I'm in (dubai)
my goal for 2018 is 100k steems in my wallet.



I was in Mumbai, India in my office party on 31st.
My goal for 2018 is not use any kind of Fire crackers in any festival and will make other also aware about harmful caused by them. Air pollution is major issue in metro cities of India. Hope will try to convince at least 100 people to avoid using them.


Spent most part of the day preparing for the evening party which was at our place
My Goal is to generate enough revenue from my steemit blog so I can travel the world and showcase it the way I see it. This is very important to me as I would be able to get freedom from work deadlines and instead write stories and experiences of meeting the wonderful people that I meet during my travel. As my blog is on steemit blockchain it would be a good way of leaving behind my impressions and experience of life, world and people that I meet. These writings would be there even after I am gone.
Wish You a Very Happy, Healthy & Prosperous 2018
