Which Places Welcome The New Year First

Places-to-welcome-the-new-year-first

 

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and we decided to share with you some of the places where 2018 will come first. When the clock strikes midnight we all enjoy a loud New Year celebration and we think we are doing it in synchrony. But that is not the case because there are different time zones, so some places are first to the party and some come later. Of course this is not a race, but it is fun anyway!

The massive fireworks over Sydney harbor have become a symbol of the global New Year’s festivities. The Sydney Harbour Bridge showered in colorful fireworks is probably the image most synonymous with the coming of the New Year. As we saw Australia is not the first place to welcome it. But it is the one known for its spectacular party shown on TV channels around the globe.

 

Where will 2019 arrive last?

 

Celebrating-New-year-in-Hawaii

 

Celebrating-New-Year-in-California

 
The celebrations will travel around the world and they will eventually make a full circle.. Among the last places to welcome 2019 will be Hawaii, California and the tiny islands – Howland Island, Baker Island and American Samoa.
