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:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
