When we talk about New Year the first thing that comes to our mind is 31st December night (New Year’s EVE) and 1st January (New Year’s Day) or a national holiday or celebrations for saying goodbye to the year gone and to welcome the new year.
New Year is welcomed, throughout the world, in various forms say by organizing new year parties, different cultural or social events, new year fireworks shows at the stroke of midnight and so on.
In addition there are a few things that people do on the New Year Day like visiting God’s house (Churches, Temples, Mosques, etc), making New Year’s resolutions and so on.
There are different ways in which New Year can be explained. The best way that i find is what Wikipedia says – “New Year is the time at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar’s year count is incremented. In many cultures, the event is celebrated in some manner. The New Year of the Gregorian calendar, today in worldwide use, falls on 1 January. It was only relatively recently that 1 January again became the first day of the year in Western culture. There are numerous calendars that remain in regional use that calculate the New Year differently in different regions around the world.
With the expansion of Western culture to many other places in the world during recent centuries, the Gregorian calendar has been adopted by many other countries as the official calendar, and the 1 January date of New Year has become global, even in countries with their own New Year celebrations on other days such as China and India. The most common modern dates of celebration are listed below, ordered and grouped by their appearance relative to the conventional Western calendar.”
