Neymar completed the book in style in 2018, dressing up for a white New Year's Eve party with Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo and professional surfer Gabriel Medina.
The 26-year-old Paris Saint-Germain recently flew home to spend the festive season with his family and to see the New Year in his native Brazil.
It appeared to the two footballers and the surfer greeted the year 2019 in an extravagant way, as the trio posed with 26 women in the Yacht Club in Rio for a photo published on Instagram.

The party lasted a long night with hundreds of people watching fireworks together before singer Thiaguinho performed.
Hundreds filled the luxurious beach bar for the evening party with palm trees illuminating the night sky.
Cristiano Ronaldo roasted the New Year with fireworks in Dubai, tennis stars Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal greeted the 2019 tournament in Australia, while PSG team-mate Kylian Mbappe showed a mock-up image for a more cautious reflection on 2018.
Neymar returns to Paris at the end of the week, maximizing his free time during the winter break.

The striker is expected to miss the PSG's first French Cup match against Stade Pontivy on Sunday, but could wait in line to return to the quarter-finals of the League Cup on 9 January against Guingamp.
While some teammates and rivals continue to train and maintain their fitness to return to the New Year, the PSG-As is on the way back from injury and has largely relaxed its program.
The Brazilian has still proven his skill in the popular game teqball as he continues to recover from an adductor injury.
He recorded professional footvolley stars Natalie and Bianca at teqball with professional poker player Andre Akkari.

Neymar was a natural and secured some points for his team, but Natalie and Bianca had a natural advantage as they were used to this type of competition.
The duo are stars in Footvolley, a sport that combines aspects of beach volleyball and club football and was founded in Brazil in 1965.
It was not clear who won the game, but it seemed quite competitive in the short video uploaded to Instagram and Natalie by Bianca.
Neymar is expected to remain in Brazil for a few more days before returning to the French capital to assess his injury.
He was in impressive shape for the French champions this season, scoring 16 goals and helping eight in 19 games in all competitions.
