Though people have different day to celebrate New Year but the way of celebrating New Year is common. We organize party, we wish new year to our belongings, exchange texts/cards/gifts. We all welcome the new year with joy and happiness and wish it’d be a good year to everyone.
In most of the country, public holiday is given in their official New Year Day and somewhere even in New Years Eve. Generally, people have mixed expressions during the New Year time. New Year eve is celebrated by being with friends or family, social gatherings, visiting the relatives and making it joyful as possible. Some people take time to make a conclusion about the achievements during the whole year. They look what they did right or wrong. What could they have done and what they shouldn’t have done. Generally they think about the whole year in the few last days of ending year and start fresh with the new year.
Many people make resolutions as a way of starting new thing in a new year. Some of us try to leave our bad habits, some of us start new work, some of us try to make a habit of helping other. All we try is to make the new year special.
New Year Eve is not the only day to end something neither only is the new year day to start something.
We should be able to leave bad things at the moment we realize and correct it instantly and we should be ready to start new at any time if that can be the path of success.
Make new resolutions, note it, work hard and wisely. And next time when you look at the list, you should be able to mark it as done.
That will definitely give you 100% satisfaction.
Wish you all a happy and prosperous Year.
Happy New Year !!
