Lexi Morgan, a senior said, “I’m probably going to be spending New Years with my immediate family  because of all the Covid cases still going around.” Morgan said, “We’ll watch the ball drop in New York on TV, make some dinner and bake some cookies.”  

 

Morgan said, “The ball drop is usually on a news channel, but this year they’re having it on websites. Morgan will be spending time at her house with her immediate family. The ball drop in New York is going to start at 11:59 p.m.  The livestream for ball drop can be watched on TimesSquareNYC.org. The Times Square New Years Eve ball will be raised to the top of the pole at about 6:00 p.m. The livestream for the ball drop  can be watched from mobile devices such as a computer.

Morgan said, “I watch the ball drop every year on the news.”  

 

Morgan said, “I would usually go to a party with friends, but with the increase in cases, I’m going to have to stay home. I think gatherings are limited to 25% occupancy in a room, but I’m not entirely sure.” 

 

New Yearseve.nyc and TimesSquareBall.net are two sites where the ball drop can be watched and it’s also going to be held on social media. Facebook.com/Times SquareNYC and Twitter.com/TimesSquareNYC are the two social media platforms where the ball drop can be watched and the ball drop in New York is going to happen at 11:59 p.m.

 

Lindsay Krznarich, another senior said, “For New Years, I am going to be in the US Virgin Islands with some friends and family to celebrate New Years.”   

 

The Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball will start its 60-second descent at 11:59 p.m. to announce the New Year.

Krznarich said, “We are going to hangout at the house we are renting and spend time together there to celebrate along with getting dinner somewhere there. Staying in and 6 p.m. ”  

 

Krznarich said, “I chose these plans because I like to spend time with my family and friends since they mean a lot to me.”
