New Year’s Eve in America and around the World

Happy New Years!

In Scotland New Year's Eve is called "Hogmanay."  In other countries outside the U.S. it is called "Old Year's Day" or "Saint Sylvester's Day."  In America New Year's Eve is celebrated with a variety of different traditions.  Many states have their own unique traditions of dropping or lowering of different objects (e.g., a large ball in Times Square in New York City).  USAToday and MentalFloss.com have articles on these different celebratory practices (e.g., dropping a pine cone).
