Any New Years Shopping Tips?
New Year’s Day celebrations usually begin on New Year’s Eve, the last day of the old year. Many people stay up until midnight to welcome the New Year with drinks and loud noises—noisemakers, firecrackers, or even a hammer and anvil. People around the world have special dishes and customs which are supposed to bring luck and prosperity in the coming year. This is also the time to make resolutions and set up your new calendar or planner.
New Year’s is also the perfect time to hunt for bargains. Sales are slow after the Christmas shopping season and retailers are eager to make deals. They also want to clear out last year’s stock to make way for new merchandise. Most stores are closed on New Year’s, but you can find terrific values online.
