#NYE 2014: John Oliver Perfectly Sums Up Why We All Hate New Year's Eve

John Oliver summarizes how everyone feels about NYE in this video, pretty much nailing our love-to-hate relationship with it in the opening part of his monologue. See if you can beat this for a perfect summation: "New Year's Eve is like the death of a pet. You know it's going to happen but somehow you're never really prepared for how truly awful it is." Ouch.

So if you're feeling particularly bitter about the upcoming forced celebrations, then John Oliver's cynical ranting will be the perfect companion for you.

He even gives tips on how to avoid the evening altogether, gifting us a range of excuses we can use to dodge having to go out and pretend to enjoy yourself, when all you really want to do is stay home, eat junk food, and be in bed by midnight.
