10. Get there First

Unless you are drifting around in your super yacht around the International Date Line, the Milennium Island in Kiribati is the first bit of dry land to enter the New Year.

9. Kiss at the Right Time

Our New Year Countdown tells you exactly how many days, hours, minutes and seconds there is left of 2014.

Outside? The for The New Year Countdown 2015 AppiPhone and iPad works well too.

8. Celebrate 40 times

There are about 40 time zones, so New Years Eve is celebrated at 40 different times. Follow the progress with our LIVE New Year World Map.

7. And Then do it Again

If you live close to a time zone border, you can celebrate twice, first on the one with the earliest time, then cross the border and celebrate again. And if you cross the International Date Line to the east, you can party for another 24 hours. Set your timer to avoid falling asleep and missing out on the fireworks.

6. Halfway There

When India enters 2015, half of the world's population are already into the new year. This is due to Asia's dense population.

5. Set off the Fireworks

Will it rain? Will it snow? Will I see the fireworks at all? Check your weather.

4. Stargaze Instead

No fireworks? The Quadtrantids meteor showers are active around New Year's Eve, and are perfect natural fireworks for your celebration.

3. Make That Call

About 25 percent of the world's population will enter 2015 at the same time when China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and Western Australia do. Use our International Dialling Codes Converter to call them.

2. Set Your Resolutions

Quit smoking? Exercize more? Use our Easy-Print PDF Calendar to add dates, events and anniversaries. Our Date to Date Calculator helps you keep track of exactly how many days you have kept your resloution.

1. Get there Last

26 hours after the first bottle of bubbly pops, Baker Island toasts the New Year. Kiribati is into the second day of the year before Baker Island leaves 2014.

Happy New Year!
