New Year Cards
The passing down of elements of culture from generation to generation is a tradition and New Year Tradition is said to bring in good luck and prosperity. These New Year Traditions add fun to the celebration but they also have an interesting history and background attached with it. One of the nicest traditions is that of giving New Year Gifts and New Year Gift Ideas.

Traditionally, New Year is celebrated to bid farewell to Old Year and greet the approaching New Year with all warmth and love. People from all over the world follow certain traditional activities to do this. In certain parts of the world, the birth of a new baby is considered holy as the new smiling baby in diapers signifies rebirth.
He is supposed to bring in happiness. This tradition started in Greece and the people believed to celebrate their God of Wine, Dionysus, by parading a baby in a basket. This represented the fertility of their God.
It is also a New Year Tradition to burn effigies of Old Year and welcome New Year by setting on fireworks at the stroke of midnight. It is a tradition to ward off evil spirits by making lots of noise and having lots of fun in order to have unimpeded and harmless New Year. Even there was a tradition of Mock Combats between Seasons, Old Year and New Year, Life and Death, and between Darkness and Light; the ultimate winner being the light or life.

In Denmark, it is a tradition to save old dishes and throw them at the homes where their friends live on New Year’s Eve. It is good sign to find your door littered with old broken dishes.

These broken dishes symbolize many friends and good relationship throughout the year. Dgreetings.com offers you different and old New Year Traditions that are observed all over the world and New Year Gift Ideas.
