This special occasion is celebrated across the globe. Many cultures have fireworks displays and other festivities to celebrate the start of the New Year. In Mexico, people make a wish and eat a grape with each of the twelve chimes of the bell during the countdown to the New Year. In Brazil, they typically dress in white to bring good luck and peace for the year to come.

In the United States, New Year's Eve is usually a major social holiday. Typically, huge crowds gather in New York City to watch the ball drop in Times Square, a tradition that began in 1907 after firecrackers were outlawed. At midnight, it is customary to kiss a loved one, toast with champagne, and sing "Auld Lang Syne."

However you choose to celebrate tonight - at home with family, or out with friends, we wish you a safe and Happy New Year!
