New Year’s Day 2025 and 2026 in Christmas Island

Christmas Island 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.

Many on Christmas Island attend fireworks displays on 31 December to await the stroke of midnight and the commencement of a brand new year. They may also swim and play at the beach on New Year’s Eve and Day.
