(Newser) – Your wishes for world peace, greater height, smarter bosses, and healthy children will float down on Times Square tomorrow night among more than a ton of confetti, reports the AP. For the first time, Times Square is collecting messages to be printed and mixed in with the 1 ton-plus of confetti that will be dropped on revelers.

Anyone can submit their message by dropping it off with the Times Square Information Center or submitting it at the Wishing Wall Online website. Wishes ranging from the heartfelt to the ludicrous have been received, according to a Times Square Alliance spokesman.
