The 2020 New Year was warmly welcomed by the people of Sri Lanka.
The New Year dawned first for the countries of Samoa and Kiribati, and then for New Zealand and Australia.
To many other countries, including the United States, the New Year dawned just a few hours away.
The decade that began in 2010 came to an end yesterday, with the dawn of 2020 as the beginning of a new decade.
