But how about the Valentine's Day, the Fourth of July or even the Halloween ball?
The New York landmark is getting a new ball for this New Year's Eve.
But the ball won't be coming down after the big party.
Celebration organizers say the bigger, brighter Waterford crystal ball will stay atop 1 Times Square.
It may be used for other holidays, along with a computerized light show.
The new ball is 12 feet in diameter and is twice the size of the old one.
