Would you like to be the first to welcome a New Year? For that they would have to travel to the island of Kiritimati, known in Spanish as Christmas Island, which is located northwest of Australia.

According to the census carried out in 2010, the island has a population of 5,586 inhabitants. During the New Year holidays this figure can double due to travelers who visit it looking to be the first to celebrate.

Although with a bit of a catch, because in 2011 their governments decided to change their time zones to coincide with their partners, the islands of Samoa and Tokelau, both in the Pacific Ocean, are also the first to welcome the New Year.

If you decide to travel to these corners of the earth, I leave you my experience of ringing in the New Year twice in 24 hours.
