New Year’s Eve countdowns around the world


The #Pacific #Island nations of #Tonga, #Samoa and #Kiribati were the first to see in the new year — when it was still 5 a.m. on #December 31 on the #East #Coast of the #United #States and 11 a.m. UTC (#Coordinated #Universal #Time, the global standard). #New #Zealand was next, an hour later.

#American #Samoa, just 101 miles from #Samoa but in an entirely different timezone, must wait a full day before seeing in 2021.
There are 39 different local times in use — including two which are more than 12 hours ahead of UTC — which means it takes 26 hours for the entire world to enter the #New #Year.
#So, if you really, really, really love to hum “#Auld #Lang #Syne,” the list below will get you in the spirit — over and over and over again.

#Here’s when the world has been and will be ringing in the #New #Year, relative to #East #Coast time.
