The Republic of Congo celebrates New Year’s Day with a public holiday every 1 January, as does most of the rest of the world. However, the celebrations really begin on New Year’s Eve and reach a high point with the turning of the clock from 11:59pm on 31 December to midnight on 1 January.

New Year’s Day is a time of resolutions and starting fresh for some, while for others it is spent recovering from a big, late night spent with friends and family.
Interestingly, New Year’s Day didn’t always come on the first of January. The older version of the Roman calendar had 15 March as the first day of the year, but it was moved to 1 January in 153 BC.
