Q: Any unique New Year traditions where you are from?

Apart from the standard count-down and fireworks which have become the norm world-wide, does your home-town / country have any unique New Year traditions or food?

 

example.

My late grandmother used to make a traditional bread called 'bannock' only on New Years day (no idea why, but it tasted great when just out of the oven)

 

Happy New Year all

a prosperous year for you and your loved ones

We Scots invented NY. So all traditions belong with us Smile

But seriously, I miss first footing the most.

Managed to do it this year in China tho. Went to a fantastic Indian organised function and me and a Scottish mate wandered outside before the bells, drank to the folk we lost, and after the bells knocked on the door of the venue to do the traditional.

Fantastic night.

May there be reek in yer lum Wink

A: If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer.
A:If he did contact the embassy they would tell him to engage a lawyer. They at least might be able to point him towards a somewhat decent lawyer, I don't think they'd be of much help aside from that though. I doubt the lawyer would be able to do much other than help negotiate the compensation he will need to pay.   -- Stiggs
