New Year’s Eve is a night people choose to celebrate all throughout the midnight hour to start their new year with happiness. It is believed that if you do so, your year will be a happy one. From a belief (or superstition) to an exciting celebration, New Year’s Eve has become the most celebrated night in the world, and also the first day of the year.
This is the time of the year when people decide to start fresh. Resolutions fly east and west, as everyone aims to be better and do better, and make some positive changes in his or her life. Not that we can’t decide that any time during the year but, somehow, people wait for the very end of the year to make their list.
In Lebanon, New Year is celebrated in different ways; from wild parties and fancy celebrations to social gatherings at home and cozy friendly nights by the chimney in the snowy mountains. The first day of the year is also a day we make it a point to celebrate happily. Families and friends come together over lunch. Here are some we picked up for you:
