New Year’s Eve

New Year’s Eve is on 31st December and all the countries in the world celebrate it in many different ways. Some examples of the celebrations are:

GERMANY: Germans call New Year’s Eve Silvester because 31st December is St. Silvester’s day. They meet at Brandenburg Gate and the fireworks at midnight are centered on it. Germans spend a lot of money on firecrackers and fireworks, so all the country can see them.

LONDON: Thousands of people meet in central London for New Year celebrations, including fireworks at the London Eye.

SPAIN: In Spain, the celebrations begin with a dinner with your family and, at midnight, each person eats twelve grapes (one on each chime of the clock). Then, people go out with their friends or stay at home with their family, watching special programmes on TV.

NEW YORK: People go to Times Square and they look at a crystal ball that goes down from 23:59 to 00:00. There are lots of celebrations and performances of musicians, artists, etc.

All of them are great ways to say hello to the new year!! 🙂
