Attending the New Year's Eve Ball Drop in Times square is one of the most famous New Year's celebrations in the world.

People have been celebrating New Year's Eve in Times Square since 1904 but the first ball drop didn't happen until 1907. For 100 years, the ball has been dropped from One Times Square every year, except in 1942 and 1943 due to wartime restrictions on lighting in New York City.

As the ball drops from One Times Square, beginning at 11.59 p.m on New Year's Eve, there are normally more than one million people in Times Square, not to mention the millions watching the ball drop on nationwide and watching TV from around the world. Once the ball drops, 1 ton of confetti will be released over Times Square.
