New Year’s Eve might just be the only time of year when “dropping the ball” is a good thing. And this year, nearly one million people are expected to ring in 2012 by watching the shimmery ball make its descent in Times Square.
The iconic New Year’s Eve celebration kicks off at 6 p.m. when the ball makes its way to the top of One Times Square in New York City. But it’s not necessary to be in the middle of the chaos in order to enjoy the festivities.
New Year’s Eve revelers can watch the festivities from the comfort of their own homes, live on the Internet through the official Times Square live stream right here.
