New Year Celebrations, What Should We Do?

Updated on December 12, 2009

This month is December. New year will come. And millions of people will celebrate the turn of this year. New year celebration is like a tradition in the edge of the year. We life in different country and we have different culture. But I believe we all celebrate the turn of this year. We talk about culture and tradition. All the country celebrate the new year. New year celebration identical with fireworks. Not completed when we celebrate doesn't light the fireworks. Usually the celebration was held in the middle of the town. Or in the capital city. New Year's Eve is celebrated with parties and gatherings with relatives, friends, or family waiting at the turn of the year. In some big cities in the world, New Year's Eve is celebrated with a party. Large cities in the world with new years eve party that is often covered by television networks and news agencies, including Edinburgh, Sydney, Toronto, Tokyo, Moscow, London, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Paris, and New York City. There are several new year celebration around the country like:

United States

New year celebration centered on Times Square, New York City. Many people flooded Times Square to attend the counting of time. There is a giant ball drop in Times Square. This tradition since more than 100 years ago. This ball made of Waterford Crystal with diameter of 182,8 cm and weight 485.34 kg. Because decorative light we can see this ball for the distance. At 23:59:00 the ball was descended from the pole restraints on Times Square and reached the bottom of the pole at exactly 00:00 midnight.


All cities also celebrate the new year eve party with fireworks. In Perth, Western Australia, fireworks launched from barges along the Swan River. 50.000 people gather around the Brisbane river watched the fireworks. The largest new year eve party was celebrated in Melbourne and Sydney. More than one million people gathered in Sydney Harbor to celebrate New Year's Eve party.

New Year Celebration in my country

I think there many Hubbers had post about New Year Eve in many big cities around the world. And we all know about that. Million people in my country also celebrate the new year eve with different ways. Many people sell the trumpet from the paper in the roadside. With various type of trumpet. Start from the kid until older people bought this trumpet. We all blew the trumpet together in the New Year Eve, promptly at 00:00 midnight. Another tradition is many people sell the corns in the roadside. We usually roasted this corn. And we ate together with our family or friends. And the big party with Fireworks also held on Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia.

what should we do in New Year Eve ?

The party is identical with fun and enjoy. We don't blame about that. There is a time for fun and there is a time for sad. But don't forget about the economic condition right know. Maybe the rich people always fun and enjoy this life everyday. There is no burden on their shoulders. And how about many people who still suffering right know. They need our help. And maybe the can't feel what our feel in the party at new year eve. They feel happy at that time but actually they still suffer. And don't forget that we are facing global economic crisis. Many people loss the job and the economic not fully recovered yet. How if we celebrate the New Year Eve wisely. And closer to the God with more prayer. And we hope next year is better than this year. And the global economic crisis will end soon....Amen. There is a little quotes from me: "The Party Must Go On And Use it Wisely.

      Hi Prasetio,

      Your kind heart glows brightly in this posting of what New Years means to people around the world. I think that everyone hopes for a better year to come but for those who are truly suffering...even more so. We are in the third month of the year 2013. Let us hope and pray that each person around our small globe has a better life in this new year. Up and useful votes.

      prasetio30! I was once in times Square waiting for the ball to drop! Each corner was crowded with hundreds of police officers in black uniforms and it felt so surreal.....I remember a very famous actor telling me to "hide my jewelry" and get to the car right after the ball drops and everyone rings in the New Year.....I was "terrified" and young. It was really exciting though and my whole body felt energized! I will never forget it!

      Thanks for this hub......G
