New Years Eve and Day 2020 - 2021
Date When Celebrated : The evening of December 31 to the morning of January 1
New Year's Eve is when all the fun and festivities are. We see out the old year and ring in the new. While it is often thought of as a time to drink and be merry, many people take it as an opportunity to eat and be merry. Drinking is not as much a part of the event as it was decades ago, if only because of tougher drunk driving laws.
New Years' Day on the other hand, is a time to relax and enjoy the start of a bright and promising new year....a new beginning. It is a time to be with family. After all, you haven't seen your mother in law since last year.
So, enjoy everything about New Year's....it only comes once a year.
To many Americans, the ball dropping at Times Square in New York City signals the start of the new year in this country. The ball was first dropped in 1908.
New Years Trivia: Did you know that a raisin dropped in a glass of fresh champagne will bounce up and down continuously from the bottom of the glass to the top.
Did you make a New Year's resolution? Millions of people do. It's easy to make resolutions, yet much harder to accomplish them.
As you get well into January, those unaccomplished New Year's resolutions hang over your head. Lucky for you, there is a Ditch Your New Year's Resolutions Day
