The New Year’s Eve ball descended at midnight in 1907. Since that year, this is a tradition where people get together with the only common purpose of welcoming this next 12 months of life and new adventures. This year's Times Square ball, illuminated by thousands of LED lights, weighs 11,875 pounds.
