Among the world’s myriad cultures and their associated calendars, the idea of a “New Year” is relative and hardly specifies a universal celebration or even a universal point in time. Ways of celebrating the New Year range from the observances of religious rituals and superstitions to social gatherings featuring particular foods, music, dancing, noisemaking, fireworks and drinking. This first encyclopedia devoted exclusively to the New Year includes 320 entries that give a global perspective on the New Year, beyond its traditional Western associations with Christmas. National or regional entries detail the principal traditions and customs of 130 countries, while 27 entries discuss major calendar systems in current use or of significant historical interest. The remaining entries cover a wide variety of subjects including literary works, movies, and television specials; the customs of specific ethnic groups; universal customs such as toasting and drinking; football bowl games and parades; and the New Year celebrations at the White House and the Vatican.

On the first day of January 1973, eleven men wrote a very special chapter in the history of Hibernian Football Club. They were the famous Turnbull's Tornadoes and they humbled arch-rivals Hearts in an epic 7-0 victory at Tynecastle stadium in Edinburgh. Now, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of that historic match, Ted Brack tells the extraordinary story of The Game on New Year's Day. No Hibs win over their local rivals has come close to the epic 7-0 triumph which was recorded by the great Turnbull's Tornadoes team on the opening day of 1973. It was a team so full of talent that the names still resonate to this day: Herriot, Brownlie, Schaedler, Stanton, Black, Blackley, Edwards, O'Rourke, Gordon, Cropley and Duncan - all managed, of course, by the imperious Eddie Turnbull. And in their greatest ever game, their silky skills enabled them to achieve a record victory against an able Hearts side that was left reeling by the scale of its defeat. With first-hand accounts of the day from Tornadoes like ice cool goalkeeper Jim Herriot, world-class full back John Brownlie, rock-solid centre half Jim Black, classy and composed sweeper John Blackley, midfield maestros Alex Edwards and Alex Cropley, goal scorer supreme Jimmy O'Rourke and the peerless captain Pat Stanton, this is the definitive account of a match which still boasts the record competitive winning margin between Edinburgh's Big Two - Hearts supporters please note. And with the memories of fans who were there and some who wish they had been, The Game on New Year's Day is a must read for Hibees everywhere.

You can call it superstition, faith, and/or hopeful or wishful thinking. However, it may be best to have done something than to have done nothing at all. Most New Year’s superstitions, traditions, and customs come from the strong belief that whatever is done on the first day of the year will set the pattern for the coming year. Other superstitions are to send off evil spirits, invite good luck and good fortune, and invite lady luck into your home. Traditions may involve religious celebrations, costume parties, parades, processions said to bring good luck and good fortune in the New Year.
