With the New Year right around the corner, we’re taking a look at how different cultures ring in the New Year. From grand fireworks displays to wearing different colors to bring fortune in the New Year – these are some of the most interesting holiday traditions from around the world. In some countries, it’s customary to celebrate with food and drink surrounded by friends, whereas in other South Africa, residents throw old appliances and furniture out of the window. Literally, out with the old and in with the new!

And as the New Year approaches we often reflect on resolutions and how to improve ourselves, our career and our future. We hope that our quick tour of global traditions will inspire you to travel more, learn a new language and explore all that there is out there in the world.
