- New York City, New York
Not to Miss: A New Year ritual, every year on the New Year’s Eve, millions of people gather together in the much-coveted Times Square to see an array of renowned musicians and the ball drop. In this, a ball weighing nearly 12,000 pounds that is 12-foot-wide is descended from the top of the One Times Square; making it one of the most projecting attractions on the New Year’s Eve. So, book a reservation in one of the cool bars or a lively restaurant overlooking the Times Square and enjoy the local delectable delicacies. Taking a night boat ride on the New York Harbour to catch a glimpse of the midnight fireworks display near the Statue of Liberty Island is another blessing in disguise that New York City has in store.
- Edinburgh, Scotland
Not to Miss: In Edinburg, festivities start on 30th December where thousands of revelers carry torches while marching from the Parliament Square to Calton Hill while the skies are set ablaze with fireworks. On the eve, more revelers take to the street and sing ‘Auld Lang Syne’. A lot of live music concerts, ceilidhs and theatre shows are organized during this time.
