What time is New Year 2019 around the world and where is it celebrated earliest and latest? – iNews

The New Year’s Eve countdown is one of the most shared moments for countries around the world, as communities watch their televisions to welcome the new year.

However, due to the marvel of our rotating planet, the moment happens again and again around the world throughout New Year’s Eve in the UK and into New Year’s Day.

Obviously, because the sun rises in the East, the countries nearest to the International date line on the west side of it will experience the festivities first. Samoa, Tonga and Kiribati will be among the first to welcome in 2019.

Among the last will be Baker Island and Howland Island in the Pacific, who will be celebrating the arrival of New Year’s Day as we in the UK are already halfway through it.
