Firework displays around the world began to usher in a brand new year – beginning in Sydney, Australia.

Around 100,000 people gathered to watch celebrations in Hong Kong as a massive 12.5 million Hong Kong dollar (1.6 million US dollar) fireworks display, said to be the biggest ever in the southern Chinese city, ushered in the new year.

The soundtrack to the Mayor of London’s New Year’s Eve Fireworks Display, was produced by Nik Goodman and Dan McGrath from the music, sound and content company, Bounce.

And lastly what are those Yanks going to do in New York, USA?
Proceedings began with some breakdancing panda bears? (is it year of the panda in 2013?) then the traditional ball drop, (sounds a bit rude really) then followed by the midnight snog and um the most popular (insert annoying) song from 2012 Psy-Gangnam Style.
