Event Details

In the Gregorian calendar, New Year’s Eve (also known as Old Year’s Day or Saint Sylvester’s Day in many countries), the last day of the year, is on December 31 which is six days after Christmas Day. In many countries, New Year’s Eve is celebrated at evening social gatherings, with customary dancing, eating, drinking and the lighting of fireworks to mark the new year. Some people attend a watch night service or late-night Christian church service, where people prepare for the new year through prayer and resolution. The celebrations generally go on past midnight into January 1 (New Year’s Day). Samoa and parts of Kiribati are the first places to welcome the New Year while Baker Island in the United States, is among the last.
