    Maggie Bates and Megan and Cathleen Childs from Fort Worth, Texas, revel in swirling confetti blown up from a subway grate. The display is part of the annual air worthiness test for confetti used during the Times Square New Year's Eve celebrations. Inset: Some of the confetti released at midnight on Dec. 31 will feature handwritten wishes created by people who stopped by the Times Square Visitors Center. Three thousand pounds of confetti will be thrown by hand from various buildings in Times Square to celebrate the New Year. Photo By Andrew Schwartz
