-- In the Gregorian calendar, New Year's Eve (also known as Old Year's Day or Saint Sylvester's Day in many countries), the last day of the year, is on December 31st which is the seventh day of Christmastide. In many countries, New Year's Eve is celebrated at evening social gatherings, where many people dance, eat, drink alcoholic beverages, and watch or light fireworks to mark the new year. Some Christians attend a watch night service. The celebrations generally go on past midnight into New Year's Day, January 1st.

National Champagne Day
- Celebrated by breaking open a bottle of bubbly! Most people need a good reason to drink champagne because it's more of a celebration drink but National Champagne Day is a holiday in itself which gives everyone an excuse to drink the bubbly!

First Nights
- First Night is an artistic and cultural celebration on New Year's Eve, taking place from the afternoon until midnight. Some cities have all their events during the celebration outside, but some cities have events hosted indoors by organizations in the city, such as churches and theaters. Since it happens on New Year's Eve, First Night celebrations are actually held on the last night of the old year.

New Year's Resolutions
- New Year's Eve has always been a time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It's a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes.

Make Up Your Mind Day
- A very decisive day. All during the year, you've put on hold, many issues and decisions. Eventually, they need to be resolved and decided upon. Well, today is the day. It's not a day to procrastinate. It's not a day to put off making a decision. If you are going to make up your mind this year, you'd better do it real soon. And, when you think about it, isn't it a great idea to clean the slate in advance of the new year!?

Leap Second Time Adjustment Day (1972)
- A leap second can be added or subtracted, twice a year to keep time in sync with the atomic clock time. The second is added or subtracted, at midnight on June 30th and December 31st. The leap-second system was first introduced in 1972.

World Peace Meditation Day
- World Peace Meditation Day is observed in recognition of the need for world peace. Meditate and find the peace lying within yourself.
