NEW YORK — Workers have been busy preparing and installing 192 new sparkling Waterford crystal triangles to the total 2,688 that creates the ultimate sparkle for this year’s New Year’s Eve Time Square sphere.
According to CBS, the annual celebration counting down to the new year is watched around the world where the ball measuring 12-feet in diameter and weighing almost 12,000 pounds is lowered on the evening of Dec. 31.
“This year’s theme is the gift of harmony,” Brennan said. “So when I think of harmony on an individual personal basis, it’s all about having that equilibrium of mind, of body, of soul.
“If you’ve got that going on at the same time, you’ve got everything just ready for you, and you’re ready to take on the world,” he said.
CBS estimates one million people to gather around Manhattan’s Times Square each New Year’s Eve, while millions more watch the ball drop on television and online.
