Why Do We Celebrate New Year

New Year is the time of the year whose arrival is eagerly awaited by children, young and old people. 1st January is celebrated as New Year in most countries of the world.

The New Year brings new happiness, new desires, and new thinking and enthusiasm in everyone’s life, along with this, the new year also gives the message of living life in a new way. In the new year, people move forward in their life with fresh and positive thinking by eliminating negative feelings from their minds.

New Year is celebrated on different dates in different countries because we have a different calendar that starts on separate dates in the world. According to the Gregorian calendar, January 1st is the first day of the new year and the 31st December evening is called New Year EveIndian New Year’s days have several variations depending on the region and are based on the Hindu calendar.

There is a belief about celebrating New Year on 1st January that it helps to unite people from different religions and communities, it is considered very important in establishing unity. Because all the people come together, gather in one place and celebrate this day.

People start celebrating the arrival of the New Year from the night of December 31 on the last day of the old year, and on this night, people keep account of the time and at 12 o’clock they wish their friends, relatives a happy life.  Apart from this, people set off fireworks to celebrate and welcome the new year.

In the New Year, we start a new life with a new resolve by eliminating the evils within us. On January 1, the first day of the new year, people celebrate with great enthusiasm so that every single day of the year is spent happily, while many people also wear new clothes, perform puja rituals, and feed sweets to each other on this day. Everyone celebrates the new year in their own way. In fact, it is believed that if the first day of the year is celebrated with enthusiasm and happiness, then the year will be spent with the same enthusiasm and happiness.

On the occasion of New Year, some like to spend time together at home with their family members and enjoy tasty food by making various dishes at home, some people like to go out for a picnic with friends, or go out to watch a movie with friends or family. At the same time, there is a trend of cutting cakes in the New Year.  Everyone tries to celebrate this day in their own way and make it memorable so that their whole year is spent in a special way.

On the other hand, if we talk about celebrities, then they too celebrate this day by partying in a special way or spending their time with their family members. Many people also feed food to poor people or distribute blankets, clothes, etc. on this day. The new year brings new happiness, new energy, and new joy to everyone’s life.

On the occasion of New Year, people also give various types of greetings and gifts to their friends and relatives. But now over time, the way of celebrating the new year is also changing. Now the trend of greeting is becoming less, so on social media such as Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram, messages, and greetings for the new year are seen.

Every year after 365 days the new year comes, it’s time for people to assess their entire year to see what they have lost for the whole year. With this, people should try to make their coming year better. There are ups and downs in everyone’s life. If the new year brings happiness for someone, then someone’s year ends in great misery. Therefore, everyone should understand the importance of the year and try to make it better than the previous year. Because the new year is the time when a person thinks about living his life with a new thought.

This new year we should think about solving our problems and try to rectify our mistakes. Apart from this, if any of your relatives and close friends have disconnected from you or have drifted apart in the past year, then one should try to connect and strengthen those relationships more than before.

With this, people try to make their coming year enjoyable and successful by forgetting the bad memories and sad moments in the past year and learning from their mistakes made in the past year. People celebrate the new year with success in life, lots of happiness, new hopes, new dreams, new goals, and new ideas.

Apart from this, programs are also organized in different places in the joy of the New Year, so that people can cheerfully say goodbye to their old year and welcome the new year with renewed vigor and new hope.
