Which country is the first to ring in the New Year?

  • Samoa/Apia correct

    By the time everyone's gathered in New York City's Time Square, Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Beach and England's London Eye, the small islands of Samoa and Apia are already ringing in the New Year. Samoa is a beautiful island created by volcanic explosions. It's known for its natural beauty, waterfalls and jungle terrain. If you are visiting for New Year's Eve, you may find yourself taking part in a traditional dance or witness people juggling flames. These are just two of the celebrations that took place as Samoa and Apia residents welcomed 2016. Source: Travel Channel, World Time Zone, Lonely Planet, Mirror
