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.
