New Year's Eve
New Year's, celebrated at the stroke of midnight, is celebrated all over the world except Israel. This is a public holiday that usually includes a fireworks display and kissing friends and loved ones at midnight. New Year's Eve is referred to different names around the world - for example in Scotland, New Year's Eve is called Hogmanay and incorporates a special tradition know as First Footing. When the first person after midnight comes to your door to cross the threshold, they must be of dark hair, which is believed to bring good luck to the home and family for the remainder of the year. If they are not dark haired, they are required to present a piece of coal. It is customary in Scotland for Revelers to 'go' First Footing to family and friends after midnight into the wee hours of the morning.
Of course, in the United States we are all familiar with how popular gathering in New York is for many and even more celebrate around the world by watching the celebration from Times Square on television
Canada too is well known for their New Year's traditions, on New Year's Day, people gather on beaches and run into the water to celebrate what is also known as polar bear plunges.
Regardless of your traditions, ringing in the New Year is often done with social gathering, parties of all sorts, lot's of fun and a tremendous amount of noise at the stroke of midnight.
