    Definitive Proof That New Year's Eve Is Actually The Worst

    There, I said it.

    The first piece of evidence is the movie, "New Year's Eve," which came out in 2011.

    Pretty much no one liked it.

    It was deemed "generally unfavorable," which obviously reflects how the people feel about the holiday as a whole.

    It's not your fault Zac Efron. It's not your fault.

    And then there's the fact that autocorrect has been known to change NYE to "bye."

    LOL my phone autocorrects NYE to "bye"

    I mean... come on.

    Answer: No.

    Here's a helpful mathematical equation to break things down:

    Still don't believe me? John Oliver sums it up quite nicely.

    "OK, OK. I believe you now." – You.

    But don't worry, there are still plenty of great things to do on NYE!
