In the United States, it is a very old tradition to say farewell to the last year on the New Year’s eve by dropping a ball at the Times Square in the New York city. Americans have been celebrating the New Year on this spot for more than a hundred years. The dropping of a big decorated ball exactly at the midnight has now become an event that everyone looks forwards to even when located somewhere else in the US.
But if you cannot go to the Times Square, New York this year because of the continuing pandemic situation, then you can enjoy watching the Times Square celebrations including the ball-drop online from the comfort of your home.
Here is how you can watch Times Square celebrations on the New Year’s Eve 2022:
