New Year is one of the most popular holidays celebrated by people all over the world. It has been celebrated in Ukraine since ancient times, at different times of the year: in spring, autumn and then in winter. On January 1, the New Year began to be celebrated after Peter I introduced the Gregorian calendar in 1700. At the same time there was a tradition to decorate Christmas trees, arrange noisy masquerades and festivities. Also, it was customary to set a rich table to bring prosperity and prosperity next year. On New Year’s Eve, various magical rituals and ceremonies were performed for a good harvest and good fortune for young people.
Different countries of the world have their own peculiarities of the New Year’s meeting. Yes, in Italy, it is customary to throw old things out of the house on New Year’s Eve, and on the table they must have grapes, nuts and lentils, which are sure to bring home longevity and prosperity. In Britain, it is customary to exchange greeting cards and arrange masquerades in fairy costumes. In Japan, the New Year’s bell rings 108 times, as it is believed that people are prone to the six greatest sins (greed, anger, frivolity, envy, indecision and stupidity), each of which still has 18 shades. And every blow of this New Year’s bell seems to kill one vice. And the most interesting custom in Japan is to buy a rake, or even better to give them to someone, so that next year there was something to “rake” happiness. In Ireland, on New Year’s Eve, it is customary to open the door wide and treat everyone who comes to visit. In Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic, the New Year is called New Year’s Eve. Just like when the 1000th year came, people were waiting for the end of the world, but St. Sylvester defeated the serpent that was to destroy the earth, and therefore it is customary to celebrate this holiday loudly with fireworks and folk festivals. In Spain, on New Year’s Eve, everyone eats 12 grapes, and it is believed that next year will be a failure for those who lose count. So, each country has its own traditions, but everywhere the celebration of the New Year remains the most popular and beloved holiday.
