The most non-controversial thing to happen in 2020 is saying goodbye to it. And tonight, millions of people around the world will join together to do just that.
Although the coronavirus pandemic has put a damper on traditional New Year’s Eve celebrations, socially distanced events are still planned for major cities, including in New York City, where the ceremonial dropping of the ball will take place in Times Square, just as it has for more than a century. So we can all taste a little slice of normal pie as we ring in 2021.
Unlike in years past, the event will be closed to most visitors due to the pandemic, but it will still include a ton of live performances and festivities. And the good news is, it’s easier than ever to stream it for free on you TV, computer, or phone.
