If you’re scrambling for some last-minute party ideas for celebrating New Year’s, here are a couple places to consider.
1. Tokyo, Japan celebrates Hatsumode, where over three million visitors make their way to the Meiji-jingu Shrine where the New Year is rung in with 108 chimes. Make your wish, buy oracles, and burn old charms to say goodbye to the old year and bring in the new.
2. Edinburgh, Scotland hosts Hogmanay, an annual celebration that lasts several days. You’ll enjoy a torchlight procession, street dancing, and fireworks.
3. Sydney, Australia may not have the winter weather you’re used to for New Year’s celebrations, but it has the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge! Check out the Sydney Harbourlights for a fantastic fireworks display.
