With half the world in lockdown due to the pandemic, it’s been difficult to celebrate the important occasions over the last year. Now we are starting to emerge back into normality and are able to observe the year appropriately. Although there are no specific rules or traditions when celebrating most will be looking to make the most of spending time with friends and family.
Even it’s a public holiday or a private one, the important thing is that there is plenty of time to enjoy the day. Read on for some of the best ways to celebrate the special days.
1. Reflect and Regroup
New Year is the time to reflect on the past year and set resolutions for the year going forward. Spend some time alone with your thoughts and look back over the tumultuous year we have had. Of course, nothing went to plan for many of us and this may have been hard to cope with.
Take a moment to do some journaling and make a note of your feelings over the last year. What you missed, how that made you feel, what you are grateful for. This will enable you to set out your goals for the upcoming year and help you to make your resolutions.
2. Let Your Loved Ones Know You Care
It’s still nice to show the people you care about that you are thinking of them. Send some greeting cards or a small gift to those you are grateful for and show them how much they mean to you.

Why not have a little ‘me moment’ and spoil yourself by getting a little something just for you.
3. Spend Time With Family
Family is the most treasured thing we have in our lives and giving thanks for them as we start a new year is important. If you have the space, invite your family over to share a traditional and delicious meal or even just to hang out and enjoy some tea or book a table at a nice restaurant.
It’s fun to do something special and it will strengthen your bond. If you are not close to your family then be sure to socialize with friends.
4. Take Time For Prayer
Find the perfect time to give thanks and express your gratitude for the life you have. Offer your appreciation and discuss the teachings with your family. Discover what their faith means to them.
