Basically it's just this HUGE sphere clustered in jewels and lights in New York City that begins to lower down during the final seconds of the new year. As soon as it reaches the bottom, it begins the start of the new year.
Driving home from a family gathering about 4 hours away... Coming back as early as possible though, I hope, and if I'm in time meeting friends for dinner. Otherwise meeting them somewhere downtown at a club. (VIP tickets are so handy. Especially when you have sets to multiple clubs.)
