New Year’s

On December 30 is New Year’s Eve, people celebrate the New Year and what they will improve for that year. New Year’s is the oldest of all holidays and was started in Babylon 4000 years ago.  People in New York celebrate the New Year with parties and big celebrations.  It was started when the first new moon after the Vernal Equinox or the first day of spring.  On New Year’s there is a parade called “The Tournament of Roses” a competition with flowers. What started in Greece about 600bc was a baby in a basket. In English we say “Happy New Year’s” in Spanish you say “Feliz Año Nuevo”.  A baby in a basket symbolizes the New Year.  In big cities there are also some fireworks.

    Some people also do the whole New Year resolution thing, for example someone might vow not to drink pop as much or not eat meat. They just set a goal to start the New Year off right.

    On New Years Eve it is also a tradition for some people to watch the Ball drop on T.V. Some people also like to make New Year resolutions. We miss school on this day also because it is part of our Christmas break.
