“Lift your left leg up on December 31st at 11:59:59. Start the New Year off on the right foot”

The expression to start something “on the right foot” is usually not meant to be taken literally, but there have been jokes. “Before the clock strikes midnight, make sure to raise your left leg to make sure you start 2012 off on the right foot!  #happynewyear” was posted on Twitter on December 31, 2011. “Tonight, as the clock strikes midnight, stand up & lift your left leg. That way you will make sure to start the new year on the right foot!” was posted on Twitter on December 31, 2011.

“If you lift your left leg up on December 31st at 11:59:59, at 12am you will be starting the New Year off on the right foot” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on December 31, 2017.
