The New Years Ball drop has becomes the international symbol ushering in the New Year! But you probably already knew that. Did you know then, that since the year 2000 the ball has been made from glass? Waterford Crystal to be exact. Hundreds upon thousands of glass crystals fitted together to form a sphere-like shape and then lit with LEDs to dazzle the world. It's truly impressive. Before there was glass, the ball was made from aluminum, and before that it was made of iron. Interestingly enough, when the ceremony first began in 1907 it was made from wood and covered in light bulbs. If you want to know more about the occasion, you're encouraged to
read more about the history of the NYE Times Square Ball Drop!

 

And with that, here are some fun facts cited by the people at Waterford themselves!
