Wishes for 2012 to Fall on Times Square

ABC/ Ida Mae Astute(NEW YORK) -- The wishes of thousands of people will flutter down from New York City’s buildings and descend on Times Square when the iconic ball drops Saturday night.

For the fifth year in a row, the Times Square Alliance has collected wishes, which are hand-written on confetti, from visitors. Revelers who can’t be in New York City are able to submit their aspirations for the new year online.

Even celebrities are throwing in their wishes for the new year.

“I hope everybody does well -- all of us. The whole country, everybody. More jobs, everything,” actor Robert DeNiro wrote.

“My wish for New York is that we continue to be the safest big city in the country, with the strongest and most innovative economy,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg wrote.

Others were more simple.

“Peace,” actor Matthew Broderick wrote.

More than 3,000 wishes were collected online from people in 55 countries, according to the Times Square Alliance. Close to 10,000 wishes were received in person.
