New Year’s traditions around the world

Photos Logo Photos | Slide 1 of 22: BERCHULES, SPAIN - AUGUST 02: People enjoy the New Year's Eve in August celebrations on August 2, 2014 in Berchules, Spain. The town of Berchules, located in Granada, on the southern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, has had a curious New Year's Eve tradition in place since 1994. The town experienced a power outage on New Year's eve in 1994 and residents were unable to hold the traditional celebrations, so they decided to move their celebrations to the mid-point of the year, holding them in August instead.

As 2018 approaches, we take a look at the different traditions of various countries across the world as they celebrate the upcoming year.
