New Zealand ushers in 2012 with colourful firework display in Auckland
Thousands cheered as New Zealand's tallest building, the Sky Tower, lit up with a colourful fireworks display to ring in 2012. Auckland was the first major city in the world to usher in the new year. Although partly covered by cloud, the fireworks ushered in a new beginning for many New Zealander's after tragedy struck in 2011. Two major earthquakes hit Christchurch, killing 181 people on February 22 while another measuring 5.8 on the Richter scale again shook the city just before Christmas. Fireworks in the capital city of Wellington were cancelled due to wet weather.
