All around the world people celebrated the ending of one year and the beginning of a fresh start as the clock struck midnight Monday night. Some spent the night sipping fancy champagne in a club; others shivered in the crisp New York air in Times Square to watch the ball drop; while some drank sparkling grape juice with their kids and pets. However you spent your New Year’s Eve, I hope you were surrounded by loved ones to start the year off on the right foot.[see_also]
