Wishes, messages to be printed on New Year's confetti
NEW YORK -- Messages and wishes for the new year from people around the world will float down on the New Year's Eve revelers in Times Square when the confetti is dropped. For the first time, anyone can get a message printed on a piece of the multicolored confetti by visiting the Times Square Information Center or by using the Internet to type a message on a "Wishing Wall Online" -- tinyurl.com/2c5efd.
The message-carrying pieces will be mixed among the more than one ton of confetti, organizers said.
Messages can be serious or silly, said Tim Tompkins, a spokesman for the Times Square Alliance, which organizes the party.
So far, messages have included everything from wanting to be taller or having a smarter boss to healthy children and asking for the safe return of a child from Iraq, he said. "Peace in the World," reads one posted on the "virtual wishing wall."
"Another person wrote that they wanted their husband to get a green card so that they could join them here in the states," Tompkins told WABC-TV.
