My ball is changing

through time-energy converts

human to divine!

  • The first Times Square Ball was made of wood and iron, weighed 700 pounds, and was lit by a hundred 25-watt bulbs.
  • Now, it’s made of Waterford crystal, weighs almost six tons, and is lit by more than 32,000 LED lights. The party in Times Square is attended by up to a million people every year.

    Other cities have developed their own ball-dropping traditions.

  • Atlanta, Georgia, drops a giant peach.
  • Eastport, Maine, drops a sardine.
  • Ocean City, Maryland, drops a beach ball, and
  • Mobile, Alabama, drops a 600-pound electric Moon Pie.
  • In Tempe, Arizona, a giant tortilla chip descends into a massive bowl of salsa.
  • Brasstown, North Carolina, drops a Plexiglas pyramid containing a live possum; and
  • Key West, Florida, drops an enormous ruby slipper with a drag queen inside it.
