Happy New Year! Where Will 2015 Hit First?

(Updated for 2018 HERE!)

The New Year of 2015 is coming!

The first places to welcome 2015 will be Samoa and Christmas Island and the small country of Kiribati (the former Gilbert Islands). The New Year is coming to those small countries in the middle of the Pacific in (as of 11:38 p.m. Chicago time) 4 hours and 24 minutes, which is 20 hours before we will welcome 2015 in Chicago, in the Central Time Zone.

You can watch the world turn to 2015 at this link:

Time left before the New Year around the globe!

Actually, the whole Time and Date website is full of interesting tidbits.  I'm surprised I never came across it before.
