Follow the new year around the world

(CNN) – Look beyond your country. Not everyone starts The new year like you

The Pacific island nations of Tonga, Samoa, and Kiribati were the first to fly by in the new year, when it was just 5 a.m. on December 31 on the east coast of the United States. New Zealand was next, an hour later.

Samoa is always the first country to celebrate the New Year. American Samoa, its neighbor 162 kilometers (101 miles) away, has to enviously watch and wait a full day.

There are 39 different local times in use, including two times that are more than 12 hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), meaning that it takes the entire world 26 hours to enter the new year.

So if you really love to party, the following list will get you in the spirit again and again.

This is when the New Year will arrive in different parts of the world, relative to US East Coast Time.
