New Year's Things to do

New Year's Things to do

Have fun with NetFlorist

New Year’s Eve is celebrated all over the world in all the different time zones come the 31st of December. Each country has their own traditions and rituals for welcoming the New Year in with a bang, in Scotland they celebrate Hogmanay – the Gaelic term for the last day of the old year, this is a huge tourist draw with parades, pub crawling, open air concerts, but mostly pub crawling.


There is a Spanish New Year’s tradition that involves 12 grapes. This tradition originates from the 1890’s although it only became cemented in tradition in about 1909 and was originally cooked up by vine growers in a bid to sell more grapes. The tradition consists of eating a grape with each bell strike at Midnight on December 31st, this will ensure you a year of prosperity, although in some area’s it is believed that it will keep evil and witches away (that’s a good enough thing to do this New Years for us)  

If you’ve had a hard Christmas season, with many hours spent in the kitchen cooking up a storm, or cutting your fingers whilst trying to wrap new years presents for your whole family then why not take a break and do something different for New Years, like going away for a relaxing massage so you can de-stress and unwind after all the Christmas craziness?

Or if partying till midnight doesn’t float your boat then why not spend New Year’s at home with a bottle of champers and some good food and company? That way you don’t have to worry about who the designated driver is or whose “fabulous” party you’ll have attend this year. You can sit back in the comfort of your own home and make a new New Year’s tradition!


We all know the universal New Year’s tradition that is an integral part of New Year’s celebrations is the kiss at midnight and people will go to great lengths to ensure they have someone to kiss as the clock strikes midnight. This has evolved into a way of celebrating and sharing the joy of New Year’s as well as affection, but it was traditionally a way of ensuring the ties of affection and the ties will continue for the next twelve months, should you fail to kiss someone at midnight they say you are doomed to a year of loneliness and coldness.
