UNDATED (AP) — It’s 2015 in New Zealand. They’ve welcomed in the new year with a fireworks show at Auckland’s Sky Tower.

At 8 a.m. Eastern Time, Australia rings in the new year with its annual celebration at Sydney Harbour.

In New York, at midnight tonight, a big Waterford crystal ball will drop in Times Square.

And in Las Cruces, New Mexico, they’ll spice things up with a New Year’s Eve chili drop. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
