31 December - First Night in United States
The first New Year's celebration dates back 4,000 years. The name seems to stem from what is thought to have been the inaugural first night celebration, when artist Clara Wainwright and some friends organized First Night Boston in 1976, a New Year's Eve celebration that served as an alternative to drinking, according to a 2006 article in The New York Times.
In the United States, the most iconic New Year's tradition is the dropping of a giant ball in New York City's Times Square at the stroke of midnight. Millions of people around the world watch the event, which has taken place almost every year since 1907.
Forty-five percent of Americans make New Year's resolutions. Many people ring in New Year's by popping open a bottle of champagne.
