I stayed home like I always do on New Year's Eve.  I actually stayed awake until midnight! I had to, because folks were shooting off illegal fireworks in my neighborhood and the dog was going crazy!

Those fireworks cannot compare to what Dubai did to welcome 2015, producing a record breaking light show around the world's tallest tower.

 

 

The show now holds the Guinness World Record title of the ‘Largest LED-Illuminated Façade’, with 70,000 LED bulbs used on the buildings, and 4.7 tons of fireworks used for the fireworks display. 25,000 shots lit up the sky!

The event was also live streamed with four different camera angles including aerial views from three drones. Live telecast through major international channels reached billions of people worldwide.

Professionals from around the world put in over 192,000 man-hours to make it all work.

It is such a shame that so many people lucky enough to be there on the scene, were recording it on their cell phones instead of watching it.
