This year, for the first time, the Mars candy company is sponsoring a “New Year’s Eve Wishing Wall” in the Times Square Information Center at Times Square.
They say, “Share your personal goals, dreams and wishes on a piece of confetti on our New Year’s Eve Wishing Wall, presented by 3 Musketeers® Mint. You can [also] submit your wish via our online form … the wishes will be collected at the end of the year, and added to the confetti that will flutter down onto the streets of Times Square at the 12 o’clock hour on New Year’s Eve.”
The lighting inside the Information Center is dim, and I didn’t have a great flash with me, but I thought some of the wishes I read were worth sharing. They range from the silly to the selfless. Here is a sampling the dreams that have been pinned to the wall. As always, click on a photo to see a larger image.
