2019 is finally drawing to a close and it is time to bid the last year of this decade adieu.

We have been through a lot as a country: petrol prices have been defying gravity, it is supposed to be summer but Cape Town received the memo late and we saw women shut down the whole country during the GBV protest in September.

Then things took a turn for the better as our beloved nation became Rugby World Cup champs, the Bokke brought the trophy back home and Faf's speedo broke the internet.

If you don't know what I am talking about do you even deserve to be called South African?

Bottle this feeling up and let it carry you through December because the celebration are set to continue. It is no secret that Saffers love a good party. If you plan on spending your New Year's eve in Mzansi you are in luck because you are guaranteed the best time of your life.

We definitely deserve a bash, let's countdown to the end of 2019 with a round-up of the best New Years Eve parties across SA.
