New Year's Eve is traditionally a night when friends and family gather to celebrate getting through the past year together, and expressing hope and promise for the year ahead. For celebrities, this is no different for them (except perhaps slightly more expensive parties) and many of them took to social media to send their wishes to their fans.

If you were living vicariously through Twitter or Instagram last night, you may have caught a glimpse of some of your favorite stars in their evening best outfits as they were out in the town. Or perhaps some of them, such as Shakira, opted to stay home with family nearby.

In any case, New Year's Eve is a time of joy, thanks, and happiness, and as these celebrities show below, it's hard to find anyone who can't muster a smile during this annual tradition.
