The New Year is finally here and for some it's time to celebrate while bringing in 2017. There are so many ways that people around the world show their excitement for the new year and along with the celebrate comes traditions.
My family hasn't really practiced too many New Year's traditions other than eating certain food on New Year's Day, fireworks and watching the "ball drop" at midnight. But this year I wanted to see what others around the globe are doing and not only what they do but also why. So other than partying the night away with friends and family and waking up the next day to eat and watch the numerous football games, here are a few interesting traditions that I discovered, most of them are to bring luck and good fortune for the coming year, and I can't argue with that!
