What are you doing this New Year's Eve? If you can't pack your bags and travel around the world, well, join the club.

For most people, New Year's Eve celebrations take place close to home. That's good, especially if you want to keep your family off the roads on this festive but risky holiday.

Still, you want to have fun. One way to do that is by watching people around the world celebrate New Year's Eve.

You know there will be huge celebrations in places like New York City, where the Times Square ball drop is just part of the fun that night. There will also be fireworks, tons of ticker tape fluttering through the air, and a million or so people braving the cold temperatures to blow noisemakers, jump around in their funny 2016 glasses, and make lots and lots of noise.

You can be part of that, and many other New Year's Eve celebrations. For the 20th year in a row, the website and app EarthCam will live stream the Times Square ball dropping at midnight. (See video on the next page.)
