Happy New Year!

4 Jan

Welcome to 2011 everyone! Around the world on Friday night, revelers celebrated the New Year with friends and family. And Britain was no different.

Throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, there were parties filling the streets, homes, pubs and clubs, as people welcomed 2011.

London saw the largest gathering of people, mainly based around the London Eye, where they were promised a spectacular fireworks display. They certainly weren’t disappointed, as you can see from the video below.

Not sure what the song is that the British sing at midnight on New Year’s Eve? If you are confused by any of the traditions followed at New Year in the UK, then have a look at our Guide to British Celebrations and Festivals.
