It’s that time of year again… one where tomorrow is next year. Starting at the islands of Kiribati and Samoa, the world begins to welcome in the new year, beginning its march from time zone to time zone, finally ending in Hawaii. The traditions and celebrations each nation practices are varied. Mexicans celebrate New Year’s Eve, by eating a grape with each of the twelve chimes of a clock’s bell during the midnight countdown, while making a wish with each one. In Italy, New Year’s Eve is celebrated by the observation of traditional rituals, such as wearing red underwear. In Ecuador it’s a tradition for men to dress as women representing the “widow” of the year that has passed.

Here we look at some great celebrations from America’s past, from our tradition of watching the ball drop in Times Square, to celebrating with friends and family while popping open a bottle of bubbly, making a few New Year’s Resolutions and kissing a lover as the new year arrives. Today is an excellent day to reflect on the past and look to the future. From all of us at Visual News, we wish you a very happy new year!
