(Newser) – It's that time of year again: Time for Australia and New Zealand to steal everybody else's thunder. Auckland has already rung in 2014, and Sydney has lit up the sky with its annual much-heralded firework extravaganza. In most of the rest of the world, everyone's still just getting ready. Dubai is planning to set the record for the world's largest fireworks display, the BBC reports, while in Cape Town, South Africa's celebratory concert will include a 3D Nelson Mandela tribute. We'll keep this story updated with photos as the new year rolls in.

To see the celebrations worldwide, it's interesting to note that these are people oriented celebrations, with fireworks, laser light displays, you name it, visually, as if they treat it like our 4th of July is to us. So what to we have, people gathering in New York City to see some stupid ball drop. It's tradition, so that's cool, but it's also a little sad that the only celebrations people have country wide, is some average Joe shooting off a few firecrackers. Get with it, U.S.!
