Amazing how time flies by so fast. Still feels like yesterday when we welcomed 2012, and now look - we're halfway through December and just a week away from Christmas Day. It's only a matter of time before the year ends and we finally bid 2012 adieu.
Surely there'll be parties and celebrations left and right, here and there as we usher in the New Year. But I'm sure no other celebration is as fun and exciting as Times Square New Years Eve.
With revelers filling the streets, Hollywood personalities gracing the center stage, performances from world-renowned bands and artists, and an hourly countdown to keep everyone on their toes - it's a party like no other come the 31st in this part of New York City. And then there's the famous Ball Drop - a tradition that dates back to 1907 - the highlight, and the most important part of this celebration.
From a height of 70 feet, the lighted Ball descends within sixty seconds. As the Ball drops to the ground exactly at the stroke of midnight, its lights go off and the numerals of the New Year (for the coming year it's 2013) come to life and shine high above Times Square.
This event is something you have to experience first-hand at least once in your life. The Times Square New Years Eve party is something my friends and I have long been wanting to go to, and I can't wait for the day when I'll finally be crossing it off the bucket list.
