“…Is this written by a robot, an alien, or both?”

We plan on writing a proper New Year’s Eve article tomorrow about ball dropping, because we haven’t posted in a while and we giggle at the term “ball dropping” due to our perpetual adolescence. But before we go ahead with that, we want to take a quick moment to introduce you to a very special website that tells you everything you need to know about American New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Welcome to the New Year in America – Traditions and Customs, by 123newyear.com.
It is an insignificant blip on the 3% of the internet not devoted to pornography―526 words about New Year’s traditions in America, 410 of which specifically address New Years in America. The other 116 words talk about “South American New Year Traditions” without even trying to pretend like they are aware that different countries in an entire continent might not share the same cultures and practices. There is no author, and one comment on the entire page.
It is such a tiny, tiny little thing on the internet that no one would give a second look, and we love it so much. Because it was clearly not written by a human being, and watching a computer program trying to describe this hu-man celebration gives us endless joy. So let’s go through this article, shall we?
