I wish that I could go to Sydney, Australia. I have heard that there is the most amazing firework overlooking the harbor. Sydney is my favorite city in the world so to be there on such an amazing night would be perfect. I know there are many other New Year celebrations in the world. It is a time to enjoy and a moment to make some plans for the New Year. I have spent three New Year Eve's overseas. I spent one on a beach in Queensland, Australia, another in Northland, New Zealand and lastly in a hotel room in Turkey. Where would you most like to celebrate New Year? Why?

Hi, I'd really love to experience New Year on the Space Station. For a few hours, they pass back and forth from one year to the next. "Happy New Year", didn't we just do that?

I have spent one in London at trafalgar's square, one in Germany lighting fireworks in the back streets of my friend's home, and one in new york when the huge ball was lowered. but now I prefer spending new year's with loved ones. there is nothing about a place that makes it special more than the people who are in it. :)

In our place we used to celebrate the new year in our traditioanl way "staying at home with family". But I'm very much open to changes. If I can afford and given a chance to celebrate the new year's eve abroad why not I would love to. Im trying so hard to enjoy life as long as I can. I think celebrating in abroad would be so perfect with my family.

I am planning my new year in Denmark. Actually this will be my very first new year abroad coz i haven't traveled anywhere yet in the world. If everything goes according to my plans then i will be in denamrk on new years night and i am quite confused also coz i dont have any friends or relatives there so i think it could be a boring one or maybe i can be able to adjust quickly and can find some good peoples to have fun on the event. Have you ever traveled to denmark if yes how was your experience.

In bed. No, I'm not kidding. I have to work the next day (it is Friday and I don't get holidays) so I'd like to get a good night sleep WITHOUT mortars going off outside my house!

I'm not that keen on celebrations, so I prefer a nice, quiet evening at home with my family. It sounds as though you've had some really exciting New Years celebrations. I hope this forthcoming one will be just as exciting as you wish.

Yeah, with the coming of the New Year, it is time to make a detailed plan for the desirable holiday. For me, I have planed to go back home and get together with my family. During the whole year, it is difficult for me to visit my parents because of my own career. So, for me, the New Year is the best chance for me to gather to have a big party and share the experience. Sometimes, if I won't go home, then I often tend to have a travel around my country, which is enjoyable too. Happy myLotting!

I celebrate New year's eve only inside the house since it's our tradition not to stay away from your own home when meeting the new year.

When my mother is with us, I have to stay with her for the holidays, whether New Year, or chinese Spring Festival. Young people would choose travel during the holidays, many going to Hongkang, Macau, and Taiwan. For its geological location, Australia would be a special place for celebrating the New Year -- such warm weather while extremely cold in the northern hemisphere.

Oh yah! i wanna go to Sydney too...i heard they celebrate new year there with a bang. They really spend alot of money there only for this event. New Zealand is great too being the first place in the world to welcome the new year, im dying to celebrate new years day there. I dont have any plans yet for the new year. I will probably throw a party out in our balcony overlooking the Metro Manila skyline. Yah, that will probably what im gonna do. I will invite my friends, have some cocktails and party. Everyone is invited, you should come maximax8.

We really celebrate new year here in our country. It seems like a huge party every-time new year comes. We cook different dishes and we even buy fireworks so that the celebration is complete. But the most important thing is the family should complete every-time new year comes.

We usually stay home and do not celebrate New Year. My husband fall asleep by 10 or 11 pm on New Year Eve. I watch the celebration on TV and a few time fell asleep before midnight. If I could go someplace I would like to go to Las Vegas, Nevada I have always wanted to go to Vegas and not just for the gambling but just to see all the lights and shows. Also would like to take tours of different sites around Las Vegas.

Hi,maxima! Every time Christmas and New year comes i feel sadness, maybe because i had poor childhood experience. If given a chance to celebrate New year anywhere I probably would like to celebrate it in a beach resort with my family(with my sisters family too),there we could spend more time with each other.

So i have to spend the Spring Festival on the city--SuZhou of my working by myself.

The Sydney fireworks are amazing! They light up the bridge with fireworks and have all sorts of things happening around the harbour. I have seen it on TV as it is televised each year here. Which Queensland beach were you on? I would like to watch the fireworks here on the Gold Coast from Point Danger which is where the Queensland/New South Wales border hits the coast. Because NSW has daylight savings and we in QLD do not, you get to celebrate going into the new year twice. You can jump over the painted line on the ground and go back a year in time...LOL As for overseas New Years celebrations, I would like to check out Times Square in New York city. I have been there once before in the spring time, but I would like to see it on this occasion just for the atmosphere that they have over that whole Christmas New Years period. I am sure that due to the massive crowds there, that the fireworks would not be as easy to see as they are on TV, but the atmosphere would be incredible!

Hi max, the fireworks on Sydney Harbour are arguably one of the best in the world, and are usually shown around the world, at Eastern Daylight Saving Time. Personally, I would rather be watching the modest fireworks on the beach at Bang Saen, Thailand, but I'll have to wait until next year for that.
