On December 31st, 60 seconds before midnight EST the famous Time Square ball will begin making it’s 141 foot descent on New York City’s Time square. This tradition was first organized by Adolph Ochs; owner of The New York Times Newspaper on December 31, 1907.
Every year besides the wartime blackouts in 1942-43, the streets of Manhattan, New York are filled in every direction with onlookers waiting to ring in the New Year with confetti, cheers, kisses, proposals and resolutions. For many it is a reflection of 2013 and what they can do to make 2014 better. Hopeful eyes fill with tears as they spread the emotions of change and celebrate with the world.
In Second Life, residents have the opportunity to stand side by side with friends from around the world as the ball drops upon the hour like a domino effect in the different time zones. Sims across the grid are prepared to ring in the new year with glitzy parties, live music and events that will attract thousands. Whether you have plans in real life or unsure what to do, the parties will ripple across Second Life!
Here are some places around the grid that are celebrating the New Year in Second Life style.
