How to watch New Year’s celebrations around the world online

There are only a few hours left to welcome the new year 2024. Shortly, New Zealand and Australia will welcome the new year and begin celebrations that will last 24 hours and will spread throughout the globe, until Latin America also says goodbye to 2023 and embrace the new year.

It’s time to send New Year’s greetings messages through WhatsApp or use the best apps to send congratulatory messages. In addition, you can liven up the wait until the New Year arrives in your country by seeing how it is celebrated in different parts of the world, since it is not the same everywhere.

For example, in Australia they have a countdown that is celebrated with fireworks and parties in Sydney Harbor. Meanwhile, in Italy the new year is received by eating traditional lentils and in Spain there are 12 grapes that are eaten together with the Chimes of the clock at Puerta del Sol in Madrid.

Everyone will celebrate the arrival of the New Year in their own way: with family, with friends… but thanks to the Internet you will also be able to celebrate the arrival of the new year as you would anywhere else in the world. In addition to the live broadcasts that users make through Facebook Live or TikTok live broadcasts, different mobile applications and websites allow you to directly witness the celebrations around the world. We tell you some of the ones you can use:
