New Year, The Netherlands, while a legal holiday, is celebrated quietly and socially, rather than publicly. It is observed in much the same manner as in old New York. There is much family visiting and paying of calls, partaking of refreshment, and wishing of "Happy New Year." Their compliments are of the same nature as ours, and are given and received as pleasantly and heartily.
Happy New Year to you and your family! How do you celebrate New Year's Eve and New Year's Day?
