The confetti thrown at Times Square contains hidden messages.
Thousands of people's wishes are inscribed on the confetti in Times Square. "Wishfetti" became a part of the ritual in 2015. People write their New Year's resolutions and submit them to the Wish Wall in Times Square (or online), where they are transformed into the confetti that falls over the throng at midnight.
