Happy New Year! Whether your celebratory plans involve eating grapes (Spain) or watching the first sunrise (Japan and Korea), everyone around the world rings the new year in a little bit differently. We asked our students — you! — what New Year’s traditions exist in your home countries, and you shared! Some of your New Year festivities include…
“Watching the Ball Drop in New York City (USA).” – Alee H, University of Southern Indiana
“Eating raclette and shooting fireworks in the streets of Germany!” – Laura H, University of Dortmund
“Watching the Red and White concert broadcasted by NHK while eating soba and Osechi (Japan).” – Tsumugi N, Kansai Gaidai University
“Fireworks and eating oliebollen (the Netherlands).” – Ranah B, Radboud University Nijmegen
What about you? What are your New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day traditions? Tell us in the comments! And of course — happiest of wishes for the New Year from ISEP. Will 2014 be the year you study abroad?
