For last week’s tag, we asked users to share their first days of the new year with the tag #newyear2015, and today we’re taking a look at how users around the world spent their first moments of 2015.

Now that the ball has dropped and the confetti has settled, we are officially at the beginning of the calendar’s next chapter, and have begun a new year in all of our lives. It’s a big beautiful blank canvas that we’ve all started filling out, and in this gallery we get a glimpse of how various users have chosen to make their first brush strokes of the year.

These are some of the best shots from the first week of 2015. Comment below to let us know how you have spent your first few days of the year.
