This Jan. 1, 2014 photo shows a lighted cowboy boot drop resting on the roof of the Palace Saloon, officially marking the start of the new year on Whiskey Row in downtown Prescott, Ariz. Televised images every year of New York City’s glittery ball drop in Times Square have become inextricably linked with New Year’s Eve. But Times Square isn’t the only place to ring in the new year with an object dropping from the sky at midnight. (AP Photo/The Daily Courier, Les Stukenberg)
