The place on the planet where you enter before the new year and Christmas.
The place on the planet where you enter before the new year Kiritimati island (in the archipelago of Kiribati), which in Spanish would be translated as Christmas Island, is located in the Pacific Ocean, northeast of Australia and 232 km. above the Equator. It is the easternmost island of the planet and it is the privilege of having the first time zone on the planet which makes it the first place to receive the New Year.
Kiritimati has a population of 5,586 inhabitants (according to the 2010 census), but on Christmas and New Year's Eve the figure can be doubled by the number of travelers traveling there to experience being in the place where the planet is located, celebrate the entrance of the new year before anybody else.
The time difference with Spain is 13 hours, so when we are taking the grapes, they are already with New Year's food.
Since 2011, the privilege of being the first to receive the year is shared with the islands of Samoa and Tokelau, both in the Pacific Ocean. Until that year they were in the last time zone, but their respective governments decided to advance their time what they did during the day.
The archipelago to which the Kiritimati Island belongs was used in the decades of the 50s and 60s to carry out tests with nuclear bombs by the British and American governments.
