People prefer spending their time in social gatherings with other people dancing, eating and celebrating together. They drink alcoholic beverages and enjoy the mesmerising view of the night sky being filled with bright and colourful fireworks. They are lit up exactly at 12’o clock to mark the new beginning of a year. All these celebrations start from the evening and go on till the midnight, where people bid the past year goodbye and welcome the coming year.
