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.
