2018, a year that sometimes felt like a century, has just hours left in it until the clocks chime midnight and 2019 kicks off. The last day of a year is, as ever, a time for reflection—and, of course, for cutting loose as the new year dawns. Social media posts abound on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook sharing photo recaps of the year, listing good (and not-so-good) memories, and sending good vibes for a great—or at least better—2019. And that's true of celebrities, too: Some spent their New Year's Eve thinking some deep thoughts; others headed out for a night of parties. Other celebs chose to skip the shindigs all together and head out on vacation (hey, can't blame 'em). As we all get ready to say "Thank U, Next" to 2018, here's how some of our favorite famous people are ringing in the new year.
Jenner, along with sisters Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, are hitting the slopes in Aspen—and, of course, doing the most for the 'gram.
"I ain’t got no New Years resolutions. I’m just gon keep doing the same shit. 🤣," Waithe captioned her chilled-out Instagram. We support this 100 percent.
No word on her evening plans, but Ari is ready to say goodbye to 2018—which has been a tough one for her personally, if an awesome one professionally. "farewell 2018, you fuck," she posted on Instagram. "i hope this new year brings you all much laughter, clarity and healing. 🖤 be gentle with yourselves and each other. if we made it thru this last year, we’ll for sure make it thru this one. thank you for everything. 🖤"
Along with copying her little sister's bikini photo shoot, Kardashian is also ringing in the new year with her ex Scott Disick and his girlfriend, Sofia Richie.

The new mom posted a video collage of some of her moments from 2018—and, well, let's just say she had a few ups and downs this year. The video was accompanied by a lengthy caption looking back on all of it: "2018 was a roller coaster of emotions. My soul endured, the highest highs and the lowest lows. Praise be to GOD because at this moment, I’m at an all time high. This season the devil did not rest, I was tested, time and time again. I came out of my experiences stronger than ever! My spirit can not be broken!! This year I faced my challenges by trusting myself, not always in my decisions but in my ability to overcome whatever I was being tested with. I now know I am a conqueror, I am stronger than I ever could have imagined, and no matter which obstacle I face, I will always overcome it."
