Q1. How do you celebrate New Year? 
I usually celebrate New Year with my family and relatives. We all get together at my Grandfather’s home and spend the day together. My mom and my aunts prepare a big lavish brunch. We play board games and watch a movie together. We go to the temple in the evening and have fireworks in the night.

Q2. Do you still remember a New Year that you celebrated?
Yes, when I was in 10th grade, we all decided to celebrate New Year in Goa instead of doing it at my Grandfather’s house. We stayed at a resort in Goa, which was right next to the beach. It was so relaxing to hear the ocean waves in the morning. On New Year’s Eve, we went to a ferry party and celebrated the night dancing. I really want to do it all over again.

Q3. Do you have any ceremonies to celebrate the New Year in your country?
We don’t have any New Year ceremonies on New Year’s Day (Jan 1st). Youngsters mostly party with their friends and most people like to spend the day with their families. In many states of India, New Year is celebrated based on the solar and lunar calendar like Baisakhi in Punjab, Pongal in Tamil Nadu.

Q4. Why do people think New Year is a new beginning?
People think New Year is a new beginning because they feel this is the time to make changes in their lives, do new things, say goodbye to old bad habits, and make new goals and resolutions.
