It takes quite a lot of inspiration from the ball that drops in New York City and other places on New Year’s Eve. The ball will crystalize and then start slowly dropping as the countdown begins. With the end of the countdown, a new year begins which comes in with loads of new opportunities and exciting ventures for all of us.
