Description

The New Year, a transition from one year to the next, is a time to honor the past and prepare for a hopeful future.

Despite the numerous cultural and religious differences among countries, one universally common occurrence is the transition from one year to the next. Although cultures commemorate the event in varying ways, the New Year is generally a time to honor the past and prepare for a hopeful future. "Western and Chinese New Years Celebrations" focuses on New Years Eve and New Years Day--the two-day public holiday that is probably the most widely celebrated holiday in the world--and Chinese New Year, which is celebrated by more than 1 billion people every year. Unique New Years traditions and customs can also be found in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America, and Oceania.
