Guam 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.

Since Christmas Day falls on 25 December, New Year’s Day always comes exactly one week after Christmas. This week between two of the biggest holidays in the Western world is a time of general merry-making and festivity. Guam is no exception.

Many families in Guam have a family member in the US Armed Forces. Communicating with them around New Year’s Day is important to people in Guam, and it is a special blessing when a loved one is able to get off-duty and visit home for Christmas and New Year’s.
