New Years Traditions
Every year, there comes a holiday called New Year's Day, a celebration of the new year. There are many traditions that many people celebrate for New Years, like eating specific foods, black eyed peas, the hopefulness of our New Year's resolutions, and even the relocation of the celebrations, like Chinese New Years. I will be posting data collected on new years traditions, the differences of how all of us celebrate new years.
RQMS 8th Grade Survey
In a recent survey at Rock Quarry Middle School in 8th grade, we asked New Years traditions from them. Here are the results we found.
Number of 8th graders who took this survey: 147
Percentage of 8th graders:
88% of us spend with family
12% of us spend without family
25% of us spend with both family and friends
48% of us spend with only family
14% of us spend with only friends
57% watch football on New Years
47% people set of fireworks
Only 5% of people don’t stay up til 12 and 95% do stay up
From multiple sources, I have gathered statistics of New Years traditions.
One million people see the ball drop at New York City Times Square
One billion watch it on television.
