Happy New Year 2019!

As we bid adieu to 2018, celebrations around the world have already begun to usher in 2019.   In Auckland, New Zealand’s biggest city, tens of thousands gathered around Sky Tower as fireworks exploded from the top of the 328-meter (1,076-foot) structure. Across the southern hemisphere nation, thousands took to beaches and streets, becoming the first major nation in the world to usher in 2019.

Reporters will be the guests of honour at the New Year’s Eve party in New York’s Times Square on Monday, in what organizers said was a celebration of press freedom after an unusually deadly year for journalists at US news outlets, Reuters reported. On the other hand, France is deploying more than 1,47,000 security forces nationwide to gird for New Year’s Eve unrest as yellow vest protesters prepare to join the public revelry, Indian Express reports.

New Year’s Day, which according to the Gregorian calendar falls on January 1, is one of the most popular occasions across the globe and people irrespective of religion, caste and creed celebrate it in their own ways.
