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?

They are...

BEJEWLING JEAN SHORTS

EATING TASTY CLEMENTINES

FORCING THEIR CAT TO WEAR AN ADORABLE SANTA HAT

CHILLIN' IN THE MEAT SECTION OF THE GROCERY STORE

POSING IN FRONT OF A MASSIVE MONKEY

ELFING THEMSELVES

HANGIN' OUT WITH A FAKE HORSE HEAD...?

MAKING AN AWESOME SAND SNOWMAN

BUILDING FORTS

TAKING PICS OF CREEPY REINDEER MANNEQUINS

EATING BANANA NUT MUFFINS AND APPLE JUICE

AND... WE HAVE NO IDEA, BUT IT LOOKS QUITE MAGICAL
