There are also some interesting facts about this celebration. The Babylonians celebrated the first New Year about 4000 years ago. Today, some cultures celebrate this day in very unusual ways. For example, many Italians wear red underwear on New Year’s Day because they believe it will bring them good luck for the rest of the year. And in Venezuela, people wear yellow underwear. In Denmark, some people break plates on their neighbours’ door at midnight. In in Belarus, unmarried women play an unusual game on New Year’s Eve.
