New Year’s Day 2025 and 2026 in American Samoa

American Samoa 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.

American Samoa, along with Kiribati, is the first place on the globe to welcome each new year as it arrives. This is based upon its time zone located near the International Date Line.

There are fireworks displays, beach parties, and private celebrations all across American Samoa as the old year dims and dies and the new year comes to life.
