Times Square was once again the place to be at midnight. With various events and everyone waiting for the ball to drop, the Big Apple should definitely be on your list for next year. It was raining during most of the night, but that didn’t stop the people nor the celebrities to have the best time ever.

Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper once again hosted CNN’s Live New Year’s Show and the duo did an awesome job. Robin Thicke, Snoop Dogg, Sting and more appeared on FOX’s New Year’s Eve show.
Sydney hosted one of the most opulent New Year’s Eve celebrations in the world. The Australian gem as per usual is all about fireworks. The top location is the Harbour Bridge. The night started out with rain, but that didn’t stop everyone from gathering at the bridge to ring the new year. Sydney is actually one of the first cities that welcomed 2019. The estimated number of people who appeared for the celebration is over 1.5 million. According to news outlets, over 8.5 tonnes of fireworks and 100,000 individual effects were launched around the bridge. There was one typo that happened during the show everyone noticed.

The capital of France celebrated in style in spite of the tight security measures. Thousands of people made sure to appear in the center of the city to follow the iconic fireworks. Champs-Elysees is the main spot where everything takes place. It is a long street that people try to get to really early so they can follow the light show at midnight. This year it was a 20-minute spectacle with astounding fireworks. The security was tighter than usual for many reasons. But, the event was just as beautiful without any accidents.
We can’t forget about London, as one of the cities with breath-taking New Year’s Eve celebrations. The capital of Britain puts a lot of money each year presenting a happening worth all of your time. This year Big Ben has been under construction for a while, but the Brits still found a way to include it in the event. They included a special mechanism and kept the tradition going. The original mechanism had to be restored since it’s been working for almost 200 years. Big Ben was opened in 1859.
