IN PHOTOS: New Year 2015 Fireworks & Celebrations In The Philippines

Happy New Year, Philippines!

The New Year’s Eve celebrations have officially started as Fiji and New Zealand welcomed 2015 with glamorous firework displays that set the bar high for the rest of the world.

Then followed by Sydney, Australia, where more than a million people are thought to have gathered in the famous Harbour to see the fireworks display at midnight.

More than 10,000 aerial fireworks, 25,000 shooting comets and 100,000 pyrotechnic effects will be used during the annual New Year’s Eve show.

Philippines is a country where New Year’s traditions outnumber the months of the year, the Philippines has a number of rituals designed to bring good luck in the year ahead. One of these is to open all doors and windows in the house on New Year’s Eve to allow negative energy to leave and good energy to enter.
