If you’re ringing in the New Year in the Central time zone, then check out the countdown timers and live stream options embedded in this story below. Since so many celebratory events are geared toward Eastern viewers and the Times Square Ball drop in New York, it can be tougher to find options specifically for Central Time Zone residents. We’ve got you covered for New Year’s Eve, as we say goodbye to 2021 and hello to 2022.

The first live timer you can use is provided below from TimeandDate.com.
