Merry Christ­mas to all. By now you’ve de­feated the rib­bons and tags, opened the pack­ages, boxes and bags, en­joyed the tringlers and fuz­zles, showed off your pan­tookas, your daf­flers and wuz­zles. Can we move on now? New Year’s Eve is fast ap­proach­ing. Here are 16 ways to ring in 2016, most events pan­tooka op­tional:

Happy 2015! Oops, 2016 …: Only three co­me­di­ans have hosted the Miss Uni­verse pageant in its 63-year history: Steve Har­vey, of course, plus Johnny Car­son in 1961 and Sin­bad in 2000. We like the chances of Sin­bad find­ing some­thing painfully funny in Har­vey’s epic fail dur­ing his 7 and 10 p.m. per­for­mances at the Palm Beach Im­prov on New Year’s Eve.

I can’t feel my wal­let: A Miami Beach New Year’s Eve party lis­ten­ing to “I Can’t Feel My Face” feels about right. The Weeknd and trend­ing Nor­we­gian pro­ducer Kygo (“Fire­stone”) per­form pool­side at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, where it will set you back $325 for a gen­eral ad­mis­sion ticket (pre­mium open bar 9 p.m.-mid­night), or $8,000 for a bed (ca­pac­ity 10) or a space near the stage (ca­pac­ity 30) for $50,000.

Bling in the New Year: Drake will be the star of the party at E11even (29 NE11th St., Miami), the 24-hour night­club that also will have the Miami Heat’s res­i­dent mu­sic man, DJ Irie. We are still look­ing for­ward to the Drake dance con­test to “Hot­line Bling.” For your $300 ad­vance ticket, you’ll get an open bar, passed hors d’oeu­vres from 9 to 11 p.m. and the cham­pagne toast at mid­night.

Pam on top: Pamela An­der­son, who the cur­rent is­sue of Play­boy has made the world’s most fa­mous nude at 48, is at Fifty for New Year’s Eve, host­ing the party atop the Viceroy Ho­tel (485 Brick­ell Ave.) in Miami. The in­door-out­door af­fair at the 50th floor Fifty Ul­tra Lounge in­cludes DJ sounds and a great view of mid­night fire­works.
