New Year’s Day 2025 and 2026 in Marshall Islands

The Marshall Islands 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.

The first day of the new year is the culmination of a period of general celebration that begins with Gospel Day on the first Friday of December, continues through the Christmas season, and ends with massive firework displays late in the night on 31 December.

Some people will be at home with family as they await the transition from the old year to the new. Others may be out at public events where they await the first moment of the next year at midnight on 31 December.

Although the sun sets and rises just the same as always between 31 December and 1 January, many see it as a new beginning. They make new year’s resolutions, ensure they hold no grudges from the year before, forgive all who may have wronged them last year, and set specific goals to help them make the newly arriving year all they would want it to be.
