Lesson Transcript

In Suid Afrika is Nuwejaarsdag 'n feesdag, met partytjies oor die hele land.
In Suid Afrika is 1 Januarie 'n publieke vakansiedag, net soos in alle Afrika lande, of hulle nou Nuwejaarsdag vier op daardie dag of nie.
Hierdie vakansie val gedurende die warm somer so baie Suid Afrikaners spandeer die dag buite.
Die land se strande is ʼn gewilde bestemming, veral die Oos en Wes Kaap en die strande van KwaZulu-Natal. Suid-Afrikaners het ʼn voorliefde vir 'n braai op die strand, in die tuin of in die park.
Hotelle en kroeรซ reel ook enorme partytjies vir hierdie dag.
Kaapstad se Victoria en Alfred Waterfront is gasheer van een van Suid Afrika se grootste Nuwejaarsdag vieringe, daar is musiek, vuurwerke, heerlike maaltye en baie om te doen en te sien.
Vir sommige mense is 'n nugtere Nuwejaarsdag buite die kwessie.
Dikwels gaan hierdie partytjies deur tot die tweede dag van die nuwe jaar. Baie mense woon ook die Kaapse Karnaval op 2 Januarie by ter herdenking aan die 1 dag per jaar wat slawe toegelaat was om 'n dag af te neem.
Deelnemers oefen maande lank aan die liedjies of danse wat hulle sal uitvoer by die karnaval.
Hulle spandeer ook baie tyd aan die voorbereiding van hulle kostuums.
Soms begin die voorbereidings vir die karnaval al so vroeg soos Augustus of selfs Julie.
Klopse speel ook 'n groot rol in die Kaapse Karnaval, met tot 10 000 banjo spelers in die Distrik Ses strate op die pad na Groenpunt Stadium.

In South Africa, New Year's Day is a time for carousing with big soirees all over the country.
In South Africa, January 1 is a public holiday, just as it is for all African countries, whether or not they celebrate New Year's Day on that date or not.
The holiday falls during the hot summer, so many South Africans spend it outside.
The nation's beaches are a popular destination, especially the Eastern and Western Cape and the KwaZulu-Natal beaches, and South Africans have a penchant for barbecuing on the beach or at a garden or park.
Hotels and bars also host huge parties for the holiday.
Cape Town's Victoria and Alfred Waterfront plays host to one of South Africa's largest New Year's Day celebrations with cavorting, music, fireworks, feasting, and lots to do and see.
For some on New Year's, sobriety is out of the question.
Often the parties spill into the second day of the year as well, and many people attend the Cape Carnival in Cape Town on January 2, which marks the one ephemeral day a year when slaves were allowed to take a day off.
Participants spend many months rehearsing the songs or dances they will perform at the carnival.
They also spend a lot of time preparing their costumes.
Sometimes the preparations for the carnival start as early as August or even July.
Minstrels are a big part of the Cape Carnival, with up to 10,000 banjo players performing in the District Six streets on the way toward Green Point Stadium.
