It's hard to believe 2012 is coming to an end, and we're gearing up for another year of photobombing, pranking and costuming our pets.  We have a feeling 2013 will bring even more hilarity and entertainment, so ringing in the new year is definitely a cause for celebration. This usually involves party hats, tons of noisemakers and a bit of prep, like any sort of holiday.

It's obvious babies like to celebrate New Year's, particularly because they're already getting a head start on festivities. But what's the rest of the population doing to prepare for the party of all parties?
