It’s possible to celebrate anything in any time zone flying.

You can also do it walking.

Were you at either of the poles, you could do it on foot.

@JoeyDesignsStuff: A party at the south pole would be very lonely, with the exception of the penguins and polar bears all drinking Coca-Cola.

@AstroChuck: With the exception that you cannot celebrate that you are not flying.

Not since they retired Concord.

With a circumference at the equator of about 25k miles, with 24 time zones, you’d need to fly more than 1041 miles an hour to catch New Year’s Eve in every time zone at the equator. As @JoeyDesignsStuff pointed out, it’s much easier to do at the poles.
