New Years Eve and New Years Day in Canada!
Good afternoon everyone!
Today I'd like to talk to you all about New Years Eve and New Years Day in Canada!
In Japan, many people celebrate New by watching TV programs like Kohaku, or by going to the shrine with their family.
However, in Canada, we celebrate it quite differently!
On New Years Eve, many people have New Years Eve parties with friends, and party until midnight!
About 1 minute before midnight, people usually begin a countdown.
People get really excited counting down 10 seconds before midnight!
At midnight exactly, people usually cheer very loudly and hug their friends and loved ones!
In many big cities, there are also big firework celebrations that accompany the new year!
The biggest one in North America is probably in Times Square in New York City!
How will you celebrate New Years Day this year?
I'd love to hear your responses the next time we meet!
