"Yes, it's New Year's Eve again, time to bust out the champagne and make resolutions you probably won't keep.  

But this year's different. Cities around the world will host some of the most amazing celebrations ever. Edible confetti raining over London? Check. How about 400,000 pyrotechnics exploding over Dubai? Got that, too.

And let's not forget that the new year also means bizarre new laws."  (Referring to selective US federal and states laws).
