New Year’s Eve
New Year’s Eve is celebrated on the last day of each year on the 31st of December for countries that follow the Gregorian calendar.
Some countries have their own special New Year’s Eve celebrations with their own unique names. For example, Scotland celebrates ‘Hogmanay’ where an all-night festival takes place in Edinburgh, its capital city. Wales also has its own festive period called ‘Calennig’. Celebrations, held in Cardiff, include live music, fairground rides and fireworks.
