The celebration of New Year dates back centuries. Perhaps the first known instance of celebrating the advent of a new year was instituted in 2000 BC in Mesopotamia. Today, in many countries, New Year’s Day, also called New Year’s or New Year, is observed on January 1, which is the first day of the year on the modern Gregorian as well as the Julian calendar. New Year’s has become probably the most widely-celebrated holiday worldwide. It is brought in at the stroke of midnight on December 31 in different time zones, often with fireworks and parties. December 31, known as New Year’s Eve, is celebrated with much pomp and fervour. New Year celebrations differ across countries and cultures, but some things remain the same. Apart from the fanfare and parties, most people celebrate the beginning of a new year by calling up family and friends, mending quarrels, setting goals for self-betterment and donating to charity. It is a significant holiday as many consider it the start of not just a new year but also an opportunity to start on a clean slate. The New Year brings with it new hopes, new possibilities and new dreams – and is therefore a happy occasion that is brought in with parties, get-togethers and joyous celebrations. People set goals, known as new year resolutions, in order to achieve targets they have set for themselves.
