10. Get There First

Unless you are drifting around in your super yacht around the International Date Line, the Kiritimati atoll 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 are left of 2017.

Outside? Our New Year Countdown App for iOS and Countdown App for Android works well too.

8. Celebrate 39 Times

There are about 39 time zones, so New Year's Eve is celebrated at 39 different times. Follow the progress with our New Year World Map or the Multi Time Zone Countdown.

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. Have a look at the New Year Schedule to see when other locations will be entering 2018.

6. Halfway There

When India enters 2018, 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 Quadrantids 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 2018 at the same time when China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and Western Australia enters 2018. Use our International Dialing Codes Converter to call them.

2. Set Your Resolutions

Quit smoking? Exercise 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 resolution.

1. Get There Last

26 hours after the first bottle of bubbly pops, Baker Island toasts the New Year. Kiritimati, Kiribati is into the second day of the year before Baker Island leaves 2017.

Happy New Year!
