Ringing in the new year quietly

NEW YORK (AP) - December 31, 2013

It's a concept more associated with Christmas than New Year's Eve - when revelry is the name of the game.

But in New York, while hundreds of thousands crowd Times Square to ring in 2014, not far away, hundreds will gather to see 2013 pass into history without a word.

They will be taking part in a yoga exercise that will see people meditate and reflect in silence.

Participants say it's a way to end the year on a note of tranquility.
