This year, Illinois celebrates the start of a new decade with fireworks and ball drops across the state. Whether you are looking for an evening with friends or with family, there are plenty of things to do for New Year’s Eve. Celebrate New Year’s Eve in Chicago or spend the night USA.
In an age of global media, the strangeness of the New Year spectacle is pretty easy to see. Consider an American NYE telecast: At 05:00 GMT it’s ‘Happy New Year Connecticut’, an hour later it’s ‘Happy New Year Illinois’, another hour and it’s ‘Happy New Year Colorado’, and then it’s a full three hours until ‘Happy New Year Hawaii’.
