Since prehistoric time, New Year’s has been celebrated. Even though the Romans were the first to celebrate New Year’s on January 1st, in 1582; Christian Europe also adopted the new Gregorian calendar and began celebrating New Year’s on January 1st as well.
Today, New Year’s is recognized, where rituals are performed to clear away the past so there could be a fresh start for the New Year. Similar celebrations occur worldwide in the form of fires, explosions of evil spirits, and celebrations. Many of these celebrations begin with a countdown to the New Year on the previous evening, also called New Year’s Eve. Thus, the following three stores offer festive party gear for your New Year’s Eve celebration.
