UNDATED (AP) - It's 2015 in New Zealand. They've welcomed in the new year with a fireworks show at Auckland's Sky Tower.

And Australia has now greeted 2015 with its annual celebration at Sydney harbor. Fireworks lit up the entire harbor, as more than 1.5 million people lined the shores to watch the show.

In New York, at midnight tonight, a big Waterford crystal ball will drop in Times Square.

And in Las Cruces, New Mexico, they'll spice things up with a New Year's Eve chili drop.
