How The World Sees In The New Year

We take a look at shots from all over the world celebrating the start of a New Year.

How The World Sees In The New Year

2016 will begin on the islands of Samoa and Kiribati, in the central Pacific Ocean. Followed by New Zealand, a small region of Russia, Australia, South East Asia, the Middle East, Russia, Europe, Brazil, Central and Northern America, Canada and French Polynesia. The last to greet the New Year will be Baker and Howland Islands.

Seeing in the New Year traditionally involves dancing, eating and drinking and huge public events, or for those that observe religious traditions it involves offering gifts to deities, gods and ancestors for good health and fortune in the coming year.

Happy 2016.

Chinese New Year will be celebrated on Monday 8 February. 2016 is the year of the Red Fire Monkey.
