Today and tomorrow, users who post “Happy New Year” or a close variation will receive a fun lil’ fireworks show, courtesy of the social platform. When you or your Facebook friends click on these statuses, which become bold and blue, they will see the feature too.
According to Mirror, the feature doesn’t work on the Facebook mobile app, just your desktop browser, but it’s fairly simple.
Just post “Happy New Year” in the status bar and watch the show. We also tested out “happy new year,” “happy new years,” and “happy new year’s”—and all grammatically incorrect phrases trigger the feature.
If you want to see the show again without posting another status, just click the status text.
Here’s to a brighter 2017.
