World's best fireworks! Perfect weather to top it off!

Sydney will kick-start the global New Year’s Eve party with its biggest fireworks display ever.

Interesting how they manage to do that despite being 2 time zones behind and 1200 miles west of New Zealand.

Sydney had an early fireworks festival in the early evening, at about 7 p.m., I think, before the main one at midnight.

More importantly is that they're doing so without, "fear." All compliments to the authorities of Australian gov.

Auckland's sky was lit up last night with half a tonne of fireworks, blasted from the Sky Tower to mark the New Year. I compared with the Tokyo Tower on the BBC World News.

Well - Sydney may have the best fireworks, but New Year's eve actually starts in Auckland New Zealand about 2 hours earlier. In fact, if you want to be really fussy, the Chattham Islands are the first place to celebrate it.

It still doesn't work in terms of how the story above expresses it: "The show from the Harbour Bridge and Opera House in Australia’s largest city is traditionally the world’s first major event to ring in the New Year." That's hype, and it's also untrue.
