New Years Fireworks Around The World
Every year around the world, people gather to watch the clock tick over from 11:59pm on December 31st, to 12:00am on January 1st.
Let’s remember though, not all of us run by the same calendar. Whilst we may celebrate on the 1st of January, people in China will be holding back their celebrations, as their New Year is on the 22nd January 2023! (Also, did you know that in Chinese culture, 2023 will be the year of the rabbit?).
In Hindu culture, the New Year is celebrated the day after their Diwali celebrations, and the date of this can vary each year?
In the UK, fireworks have always been a large part of celebrating a new year, and famously, every year by the River Thames and Big Ben, a fireworks display is held at midnight.
Here are some of the most dazzling New Year’s Firework displays! Notice how many famous structures and buildings are incorporated into the displays to make them even more interesting.
New Year’s celebrations are held internationally, and whether you choose to stay at home and relax in front of the telly with a drink, or head out to a display, we hope you have a good one! (And manage to stick to your New Year’s resolution!).
