New Year’s Day 2025 and 2026 in Norfolk Island

Norfolk 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.

The holiday season begins with Thanksgiving in Norfolk Island. That’s right, Norfolk Island is one of the only countries outside the United States to observe Thanksgiving Day, although they do so on the final Wednesday of November instead of the final Thursday.

After the Christmas season ends, the time between Christmas and New Year’s Day is at a time for celebration, fun, and relaxation. Celebrations are simple, consisting of get-togethers, toasts and the making of new year’s resolutions.
