This contest is fueled by the following news: RocEZ, a street vendor, models some 2005 eyeglasses on December 30, 2004. He is near Times Square in New York City. Hundreds of thousands of people should fill the whole Times Square area on New Year's Eve to view the crystal ball as it slides down a pole on top of One Times Square at the stroke of midnight. During the celebration of New Year, it is very beautiful in China. The entire country will look like a big luminous sphere. This happens because people ignite many lights in the streets during New Year celebrations. This is done to light up the path for the New Year. As they consider, that the New Year is covered with evil souls and un-happy forces. That's why they frighten them with the help of Christmas guns and fireworks. In Mongolia, the New Year coincides with the festival of cattle breeding, that's why this day is specific for sports, adroitness and boldness checks. Even Santa Claus comes to their home in a cattleman dress. In Burma, New Year comes during summer time, that's why New Year is celebrated as the "Water festival", when people pour water one on another. In Iran, New Year is celebrated on the 21st of March. People in this country, several weeks before the New Year, plant wheat grains in small pots. By New Year they grow, which symbolizes the start of spring and New Year. Very beautiful New Year ceremonies take place in India. Their people wear red, rose and white colored flowers on them. Indians have their own specific rule for gifts. For example, gifts for children are kept in a tray. In the morning the children's eyes are closed, and they select the gifts from the tray. In Ireland, just before one day of New Year, all the doors are kept open. Each who wants can enter any house and he will be treated as a desired guest: he will be welcomed with happiness, sitting in an honorable seat and offered a glass of good wine. They say "For peace in this house and the entire world ". On the next day, everybody celebrates the festival of the house. At 11.30 AM of this day, Irish people meet at the illuminated and decorated central city square. In Bulgaria New Year is celebrated joyfully. People meet near a holiday table. Lights will be switched off for 3 minutes in every house. These minutes are called as "Minutes of New Year kisses", the secret of kisses are maintained by darkness. In Rumania, people bake New Year Pies, different small "surprises" – small money, rings and chips of bitter chilies. If you find a ring in the pie, it means the New Year will bring you happiness. In European countries New Year follows the Christmas festivals that are why all the basic preparations take place at the beginning of the December. For example, in Italy, celebrations start from the day of Saint Lyuchin (13th December), when the festival of lights is celebrated. Then Babbo Natale – Local Santa Claus (24th December) arrives. All these end with the appearance of Befan – a small old Lady hag, which distributes all possible sweets to children (chocolates as per tradition) on the 6th of January, on the Epiphany festival. For the people of the capital of the Nederland's Amsterdam, the main New Year is the appearance of the local Santa Claus Saint Nikolai in the city port. Guests arrive in the country by Sea, through Rotterdam, and meeting with him in the tiny fisherman village Monnikendam will be organized by not only the simple people also by the city administration, including the Mayer of the capital. This happens generally in the first week of December. And in the remaining days before New Year, children try not to be naughty in order to get gifts from Nikolai and his servants Black Peat. In this country, the festival events take place traditionally, with compulsory drives on city skating places built specially for the festival season. Similar drives exist in Copenhagen, and many Danes specially come to the capital with their families to try out the ice. For other Scandinavian people, the New Year week between Christmas and the 31st of December passes especially – as per a fairy. As per legend, the real Santa Claus lives in a small city of Lapland Romaniemi in the polar circle. From here only he starts his travel for Christmas night so as to distribute the gifts to children to the entire planet. These are the unforgettable New Year celebrations: an almost realistic Santa Claus in red color caps, portly beautiful deers, huge sledges and ice houses, where many tourists and exotic lovers may pass New Year night.
