How is New Year’s Celebrated in South Africa?
Many people in South Africa get a day off on the occasion of New Year’s day. Very often the New Year celebrations take place outdoors in South Africa because of the exciting summer weather experienced by many parts of the Southern hemisphere during that new year’s time of the year. New Year’s Day celebrations are so popular that they last for almost two days in South Africa.
Friends and family engage in get togethers on December 31st itself and as the old year wanes, the New Year strikes in and is welcomed with euphoria, excitement and elation. It is quite common to welcome the New Year with fireworks and, in some instances, some magnificent firework displays. The most spectacular New Year’s is celebrated with 80,000 spectators at the foot of Table Mountain. This is a landmark that overlooks the whole of Cape Town, the capital city of South Africa.
