If you didn’t have a chance to experience fireworks last night, Apple Watch surprises its owners with a newly-added fireworks feature to ring in 2018.

Introduced with the watchOS 4, the animation overlays the watch face the moment the clock strikes 00:00. A similar gesture happens on a user’s birthday as well, but with balloons. Of course, those with iPhones might already be familiar with the animations when it happens over text messaging.
