New Year’s Day is a holiday that celebrates the beginning of a new year. On this day, people look back on the past. They also look forward to the new year. Many people make New Year’s resolutions. Resolutions are changes people would like to make so their lives will be better in the new year.
“Auld Lang Syne” is a traditional New Year’s song. It means “good old days.” At some New Year’s Eve gatherings, people count down to midnight and sing the song to bring in the new year.
