The turning of the calendar to a new year is the one holiday that is celebrated almost universally, regardless of religious belief or lack of it. In some parts of Asia where the lunar new year is celebrated, it is more prominent than the calendar year. But the calendar year change is still celebrated. Only one country, Saudi Arabia, bans New Year celebrations. In former Communist countries where the celebration of Christmas was banned, New Year celebrations filled that void.

New Year celebrations range from huge public spectacles such as fireworks displays and New York City's ball-drop in Times Squar, to family parties in private homes. Specific customs and traditions vary with culture, but almost everyone stays up until midnight (in their own local time zone) to watch the clock strike twelve to end the old year and flip the calendar to begin the new.

Clothing and costumes for New Year celebrations range from formal to wacky. People portray Father Time and the New Year Baby. They wear silly hats and glasses shaped like the digits of the new year. Some have theme parties such as 1920s or 1950s. Most drink a toast to family, friends and the new year, with champagne or some other festive drink. In the southern U.S., a new year's meal must include black-eyed peas for good luck.

No matter how you choose to celebrate New Year's Eve, we can help! Whether you're planning a 1920s theme party, or want to dress as the New Year Baby, we have a costume for you. We also have tuxedos, for a formal event. Glitzy makeup and sparkly hats. Feather boas. Pretty much anything you need. Now you just need to figure out what "auld lang syne" really means!

When we look back on our year, we inevitably have some wonderful memories, some sad, some exciting, but one thing is always a certainty: we’re going to kick off the new year with a celebration. That celebration is, of course, the big New Year’s Eve bash. The annual New Year’s Eve party is how we say goodbye to the old year, and say hello to the new. Will it be your best yet?

They're the first pictures of you in the New Year, and you want to be ready to look your best. We think it's pretty easy when you dress up in a flapper costume because who doesn't look spectacular in a flapper costume? But we also had some ideas for a masquerade style look that adds some flirty intrigue into the mix. A raise of the glass is always a fantastic look for pictures because it shows you're celebrating and offering well-wishes to the guests. A tip of the hat is always a charming gesture. But when the clock strikes midnight get ready for a silly picture of you with a noisemaker as the confetti drops and you officially welcome the New Year.

If you're more of the elegant ball type, we think Cinderella is a fantastic way to go. Not only does her story have everything to do with midnight, just like New Year's Eve, we think that you'll both look absolutely stunning as the prince and princess. Best part? You don't actually have to worry about everything disappearing once the clock strikes twelve. Nope! You can continue to party on as long as you desire.
