We would be honored if our team of building and home improvement specialists could help make it a great year with a great new building project.
New Year’s Celebration Trivia:
The first New Year was celebrated 4,000 years by the ancient Babylonians.
More vehicles are stolen on New Year’s Day than any other holiday.
The top three places in the U.S. to celebrate New Year’s Eve are Las Vegas, Disney World and New York City.
In Italy, people wear red underwear on New Year’s Day to bring good luck all year long.
In Colombia, Cuba and Puerto Rico, some families stuff a large doll, which is called Mr. Old Year, with memories from the past year. They also dress him in clothes from the outgoing year. At midnight, he is set ablaze, thus burning away the bad memories.
The traditional New Year’s song, “Auld Lang Syne,” means, “times gone by.”
