Happy New Year messages: How to say Happy New Year in 36 languages

Happy New Year! While celebrations may not be their usual extravagant parties, meals out and time with friends and family – the New Year is still a time to be merry. While 2020 has been a tumultuous year due to the coronavirus vaccine, the roll-out of vaccines starts 2021 off on a far more positive note.

Around the world, the New Year is welcomed in very different ways, from huge fireworks displays to smashing plates, eating grapes to ringing bells.

Fireworks displays can be seen worldwide, and Sydney has already welcomed 2021 with a lavish display over the Harbour Bridge.

However, this year has seen London’s fireworks cancelled in order to prevent crowds gathering as coronavirus cases surge.

In Denmark, smashed plates bring good luck in the New Year while in Romania, dressing up as a bear can ward off evil spirits.
