How will you be celebrating this New Year’s Eve? Quietly, with a small group of close friends? Or maybe you’ll go all out, drinking expensive champagne and shooting fireworks while wearing your most expensive suit? However it may be, you might want to consider on more option.

New York City has a tradition of greeting New Year by watching a giant time ball drop. It has been carried on for more than a hundred years and many people can’t imagine this celebration without it. However, one city in Pennsylvania has an even more unique tradition.

Instead of a time ball, on New Year’s Eve, the people of Bethlehem, PA are dropping a giant Marshmallow Peep

This city is the hometown of the famous Peeps candy and for every New Year, the brand organizes a 2-day festival, called Peepfest.

The festival’s highlight is the Peeps Chick drop

The giant chick, standing at 4 ft 9 in (1.44 m) tall and weighing 400 pounds, is slowly lowered as people are counting the last seconds of the year.

The company says it’s an “iconic symbol that represents the PEEPS® brand, our company and our community.”
