New Year celebrations were still a little different than normal this year, as the world continues to try and keep Covid-19 cases under control.
While New Year’s Eve events were called off in many locations to help limit the spread, countries across the globe still celebrated in the hopes of a more promising year ahead.
Sydney enjoyed a spectacular fireworks display over the harbour, and New York residents gathered in Times Square to count down to midnight.
A light display was also held in Auckland, New Zealand after limits on public gatherings were eased in time for New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Whether you had a quiet night in or partied with friends and family, here’s a look at how the world rang in 2022.
