New Year’s Eve – a time for new starts, celebrations and snogs. It’s considered tradition to share a kiss with someone special at the strike of midnight. But what if there isn’t someone special around? Well, sometimes we share a kiss with whoever is available – and these often make the best embarrassing stories! To celebrate New Year, we’ve collected the most hilarious, most embarrassing New Year snog stories from friends and tabloids. Enjoy!
“I was out celebrating in my hometown and got chatting to an old colleague. One thing lead to another and I received a rather slobbery snog at midnight. The next morning, I had to do the “walk of shame” out of his house – including creeping past his parents who were my former bosses!” – Claire*, 22
“I was at a friend’s and we played spin the bottle. It got to be my turn, and I spun the bottle, and, all of a sudden, I felt like there was a wet fish in my mouth. That was my first kiss. When you’re in sixth grade, there’s no art to French kissing. There’s no cadence, no beautiful up and down, no waves. Instead, it just feels like your mouth is getting invaded by a slug.” – Katy Perry
“Most people have had the horror of facing up to what they did the night before, but what about three months later? I remember bits of the party – spilling wine over myself and falling on the dance floor. But what I didn’t remember was throwing myself at my bosses son, and having a very sloppy kiss with him. I still recall none of that, and served him coffee for three months before I found out – blissfully unaware.” – Amy*, 22
“I kissed her outside of California Pizza Kitchen in Hollywood — very romantic. I’d just had a pizza that had onions all over it [and] I’m sure that my breath smelt terrible. I don’t know [if she’d remember my breath smelling]. I’d have to ask her. But I’m sure she does — it was probably pretty potent.”” – Nick Jonas
“I once went to the only nightclub that my hometown had. While belting out the lyrics to “Worth It” by Fifth Harmony, I saw a guy I’d been chatting with on Tinder. Moments later he was in front of me, telling me how I looked even more gorgeous in person (please!). Our eyes locked, he went to go in for the kiss and… he grabbed my drink and threw up. Right into my archers and lemonade. I left alone, sweaty, and a little repulsed.” – Sarah*, 21
