    First Night revives the ancient traditions of marking the passage of time in a present day context. It was created by a group of civic-minded artists in Boston as a meaningful alternative to traditional New Year's Eve revelry in 1976. Each year thereafter, other communities began to ask the founding members of First Night Boston for assistance starting their own similar celebration on New Year's Eve.
