One of the neat things about living in Los Angeles is that most things start a little later out here. By the time we ring in each new year, most of the world has already gone to bed. Actually, the majority of the planet's population is already awake and well into the next day. I guess that's why New Year's Eve doesn't seem to be quite so much of a big deal on the Left Coast. We also get to watch everyone else's celebrations before our parties begin, and from the videos I've seen (below), it looks like many places did it up right this year. Wherever you were and however you chose to welcome the new year, I hope it's a happy, healthy and peaceful one for all!
