New Year’s Day 2025 and 2026 in Micronesia

Micronesia 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.

Micronesians watch fireworks, use firecrackers, have new year’s parties, feast to their heart’s content, and stay up until midnight like much of the rest of the world. But they also have a unique and interesting new year’s traditions of their own.
