1. Many people in the UK stay up until midnight on New Year’s Eve, 31 December, so that they can celebrate the start of the New Year. People see in the New Year with their friends and family. Sometimes one can be invited to someone’s New Year Eve houseparty. Many pubs and clubs have special events.
2. A few minutes before midnight, British people traditionally watch Big Ben (the clock in the Houses of Parliament), and celebrate after it strikes for the 12th time: this is shown on television. It’s a tradition to join hands at midnight and sing Auld Lang Syne, written by the Scottish poet Robert Burns.
3. In London, people often gather in the area around Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and Parliament Square from about
9 pm until the early hours of the morning. They listen to Big Ben and watch a 10-minute firework display at the London Eye starting at midnight. The fireworks are also shown live on large screens (экраны) in Trafalgar Square, and on BBC1 TV channel.
4. In Scotland and in the north of England people follow the custom of the First Foot. People try to be the first ones and knock at their friend’s houses after midnight. In many places the first-footer is allowed to be a resident of the house (может быть человеком, живущим в доме), but they must not be in the house when the clock strikes midnight. The First Foot is traditionally a tall, dark-haired man. In some places a woman or fair-haired man are thought as unlucky. The First Foot usually brings several gifts, including a coin, bread, salt, coal (уголь), or a drink (usually whisky) for good luck.
5. On New Year’s Day people make New Year’s Resolutions (promise to start doing something good in the new year). Popular resolutions include to improve (make better): 

  • health: lose weight, exercise more, eat better, give up smoking;
  • finances: make more money, save money;
  • career: get a better job;
  • education: care about studies, get better grades (оценки), get a better education, learn something new (such as a foreign language or music);
  • self: become more organised, lessen stress, be less grumpy.

0 # Making New Year's ResolutionsСвентецкая Валерия 20.01.2019 22:17
I have interviewed 3 of my classmates about their New Year's Resolutions. I have found out that only one of them would like to study better. Only one of them wants to do sports to improve their his (her) health. All of the guys want to learn how to manage time in order to properly schedule for the day (это мы не изучали и тебя могут не понять те, кто читает это сообщение) and have time to do more than had time they used to do before. And I would like to eat better, to became become more organized and to get better grades.
