The year,  NZ farewelled an incredibly difficult 2021.

Although they started last year Covid-free — an anomaly, down the bottom of the world — they ended with acute lockdown fatigue, abandoning an admirably ambitious elimination strategy, and the virus living among us.

Last night, celebrations were muted around the country. Auckland’s normally bustling city centre was quiet as Covid restrictions forced the cancellation of the popular fireworks spectacle off the Sky Tower. Instead a light show from the bridge illuminated up the city.

The sound of fireworks could be heard as people chose to gather with family and friends instead of in the bars and clubs.
