New Year Eve

Celebrations for New Year begin from New Year's Eve on 31st December. This is the last day of the Gregorian calendar and the day before New Year's Day. The idea behind New Year's Eve celebration is to bid adieu to the year gone by and give a warm welcome to the coming year. Popular way of celebrating New Year's Eve is to party until the moment of the transition of the year at midnight.

New Year's Eve is a public non-working holiday in several countries including France, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, New Zealand, Mexico, Greece, the Philippines, and Venezuela.

New Year Eve Traditions
Tradition of celebrating New Year's Eve vary in several parts of the world due to cultural variations. In most countries people cut cake as the clock strikes for midnight on New Year's Eve and open champagne bottles to express their joys. Given here is a brief description of some of the other most popular and interesting traditions of New Year Eve celebrations.

Father Time and Baby New Year
A common image of New Year's Eve celebration is the incarnation of Father Time - the old year represented by an old bearded man wearing a sash across his chest with the previous year printed on it. This Father Time hands over his responsibilities to the Baby New Year - the personification of New Year represented by a baby wearing a sash with the new year printed on it.

Auld Lang Syne
Inspired by an old Scottish tune, the song Auld Lang Syne (meaning 'the good old days') has become the National Anthem of New Year's eve celebration. The song is traditionally sung at the midnight on the New Year's Eve in almost all English speaking countries of the world. The lyrics to the song Auld Lang Syne were written by the poet Robert Burns and published after his death in 1796. Bursting of Firecrackers In most parts of the world, people welcome the New Year by bursting noisy firecrackers. Some even fire celebratory gun-shots. The tradition emerged from an ancient belief that noise and fire helped to dispel evil spirits and bring good-luck.

Greeting Happy New Year
Just as the clock strikes at midnight on New Year's Day people start Greeting Happy New Year to everyone around. At several places there is also a tradition to kiss one's beloved at midnight. It is said that kissing ensures affections and ties will continue all through the year. To dear ones staying in distant cities, greetings are sent over phone or through SMS and New Year greeting cards.

Popular New Year Eve Celebrations Around the World
Many countries take pride in their New Year's Eve celebrations but New Year's Eve of Times Square, Trafalgar Square and Sydney are most popular amongst them all.

New Year's Eve at Times Square in New York City
New Year's Eve celebration of Times Square, New York city is one of the most popular New Year's eve celebrations around the world. The event is noted for the famous ball drop atop One Times Square. Every year, thousands of people from across the world descend upon Times Square to experience this traditional event.

New Year's Eve at Trafalgar Square in London
This is yet another most popular New Year's Eve celebrations. Each year thousands of revelers throng the Square to welcome the New Year to the sound of Big Ben's famous chimes.

New Year's Eve at Sydney, Australia
Sydney is said to be the world's preferred destination for New Year's Eve celebrations. Breathtaking firework display is said to be the major attraction that pull thousands of people to Sydney from all over the world.

  3. BTW - A respectful challenge for atheists:

    "This is a challenge I would like to respectfully ask any atheist to answer, "Why should non-forgiveness produce extremely negative patterns and unhealthy results when simply 'keeping a record of wrongs' has, in keeping with evolutionary theory, a utilitarian function of avoiding future pain and harm?" I'll offer an illustration. If I knew someone who decided to become my enemy, for whatever reason, and harmed me intentionally and frequently, would it not be in my best interest, from a strictly Darwinian perspective, to 'keep accounts' and try to harm this person back? Darwinism seems to operate based on the logic of the old law, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' Jesus, however, reverses this old law and admonished us to forgive our enemies and actually to demonstrate good will towards them, exactly what psychologists say is the most healthy approach."

You created a lot of content and named the blog something that would inevitable show up readily on search engines and I'm guessing that all these comments are only pushing up its ratings. Very nice.
