2021 was not a good year for most just as 2020 was before it. Despite that, hope is in the air as billions of people ushered in 2022 in a joyous way.
The joke for this new year is that 2022 sounds like 2020 too and that what happened in 2020 will happen again in 2022. But as Canadian comedian Rick Mercer said:
I agree. The new decade starts right now. Here are seven (7) of the best 2022 New Year Celebrations I found online.
Best 2022 New Year Celebration
Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea
The best 2022 New Year celebration is Hyundai’s New Year’s Eve countdown in Yeongdong-daero, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea. It was a very beautiful drone show with timely message of hope for everyone.
London, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
Next is the BBC’s production all over London, the capital of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It takes us back to the UK’s greatest achievements and takes us to various locations in London as fireworks all over fires in celebration bidding 2021 a farewell and welcoming the new year 2022.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Easily dismissed as “the usual fireworks show from the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa” but Dubai sure knows how to outdo themselves.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The biggest and longest (15 minutes and 20 seconds) [pure] fireworks display, and the largest attendance to ring in 2022 goes to Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil! They also earned the most heart-shaped firework display!
What is a new year celebration without a music party? Canadian comedy icon, Rick Mercer, hosted Canada’s New Year’s Eve countdown in true Canadian way, featuring an hour long of musical performances from across the country.
The Magic Kingdom, Florida, United States of America
If you are curious how the magical world of Disney celebrates New Year, watch the upgraded Fantasy In The Sky fireworks show in celebration of the 2022 New Year!
Sergio & Rhoda in Israel stayed in Nazareth during the New Year and recorded how the Christians, Arabs, and Jews of Nazareth celebrate the New Year.
Reykjavik, Iceland - Best Drone Footage
The best drone footage goes to Traveller In The Whole World for the slow and smooth drone control covering the New Year celebration in Reykjavik, Iceland!
Auckland, New Zealand
The annual fireworks show in Auckland, New Zealand was cancelled due to COVID-19 but that did not stop them from organising an amazing light show, and drivers were honking too.
The Bund, Shanghai, China
Like in Auckland, New Zealand, there were no fireworks in The Bund, Shanghai, China. However, it did not stop people from visiting The Bund in the hopes of seeing any alternative celebration and in the absence of it, they just celebrated amongst themselves.
