New Year celebrations from around the world – In Pictures

    Cape Town, South Africa

    Year 2015 is here, and people enjoyed the last eve of the passing year with a bang around the world. There were lots of night-parties, boozing, fireworks, and crowd cheering at their loudest entered into the New Year.
    However, from Shanghai’s Chen Yi Square came sad news of a stampede in which 36 people died and nearly 50 others injured.

    However, rest of the world kept the spirits high and places like New York, London, Dubai, Las Vegas, all of them did their best to amaze the crowds.

    Like always, Samoa and the Line Islands in the Pacific were the first to see the last day passing. The moment came not at the same moment throughout the world, but according to UTC timings.

    Anyway, we have collected some pictures of celebration around the world for you. We hope that you’ll enjoy them. We wish a very happy and prosperous new year.
