Top 3 Popular Traditions every New year

1. Creating Loud Sounds

During this holiday, you can’t say it’s a New Year if there are no horns’ sounds, bells ringing, fireworks shows, and firecrackers displays, as well as loud music along the streets. This is a tradition that started for quite a while now, making the celebration as lively as possible.

2. Countdown Events

This is the most exciting part of the New Year—waiting for the clock to point at exactly midnight. Together with your family, friends, relatives, and loved ones, shouting “Happy New Year!” while watching the fireworks display or while opening the champagne and tearing the past year’s calendar is truly the best.

You can celebrate this in your house, but you can also join the crowd inside malls or parks, where this modern era, people prefer to hang out together with other people for a change.

If you’re with your special one, you can also try the tradition of “kissing the person you want to kiss for a lifetime” at exactly midnight.

3. Playing “Auld Lang Syne” Song
