New Year's Eve - Origin and Customs

Where does the name come from?

December 31 is the last day of the year since the introduction of the Gregorian calendar in 1582. This day is dedicated to Holy New Year. New Year's Eve was from 314-335 pope under whose pontificate the introduction of Christianity as state religion took place under emperor Constantine.

Pope New Year's Eve I died on 31 December 335 in Rome.

Tradition and superstition

As with all holidays, also with the turn of the year various customs and all kinds of superstition connect themselves. Dinner on New Year's Eve should be with family or friends, because eating "in the circle" of one's neighbor symbolizes protection from demons who cannot destroy this circle.

The night at the turn of the year has been about defending against evil spirits since time immemorial. Noisy parades with masked figures in which drums, bells and whip cracks made the necessary noise should keep them away.

Nowadays this custom is replaced worldwide by gigantic fireworks. However, this is no longer about the expulsion of demons. On the contrary, the New Year's Eve fireworks are an expression of joy at the coming New Year. Old and young enjoy the colourful sky spectacle. In Germany alone, firecrackers, firecrackers, enthusiasts and above all rockets are blown up year after year for more than 60 million euros.

Hitcrackers, fireworks, church bells, waltz music and champagne corks - noise and music are just as indispensable in most cultures as congratulations.

"A Happy and Blessed New Year" - this or similar is the typical greeting or wish for the New Year.

In the private environment, on the other hand, you usually wish "a Happy New Year". Whereby the "good slide" has nothing to do with a "slide over" into the new year. The expression goes back to the Hebrew word "rosch", which means "beginning", i.e. the beginning of the new year.

When the first seconds of the new year have begun, you toast the New Year's Eve parties with a glass of champagne and say "Prosit New Year" or "Prost New Year".

The word "Prosit" is Latin and means "may it succeed".

All these New Year wishes express the hope that the New Year will bring happiness.

A still young custom is to say goodbye to the old year on an ongoing basis. Thousands of people participate in the increasingly popular New Year's Eve races. The world's oldest and most important New Year's Eve race takes place every year in São Paulo in Brazil. Of course, the Main metropolis also has "its" New Year's Eve run. The Spiridon New Year's Eve run has been taking place for over 30 years.

New Year's Eve on the Main

With the cruisers of the PRIMUS LINIE you can also experience a very special New Year's Eve night on the Main in 2018. There are four different ships to choose from with different offers:

Interpretations and good luck charms

A whole series of interpretations and lucky charms influence the celebrations at the turn of the year until today. These customs have been part of the magical thinking and acting of traditional societies since time immemorial. It's all about saying goodbye to the old year and welcoming the new one.

The background of the exuberant, sometimes excessive celebration is the hope for fertility and prosperity in the new year.

The "lead casting" is widespread shortly after midnight. In a special spoon a piece of lead is heated over a candle flame, melted and then quickly thrown into a vessel with cold water. From the shadow of the resulting figures one believes one can interpret the future.

At the turn of the year, lucky charms have boom

Popular are the "lucky pennies", which according to the German newspaper "Glückspfennige" are the most popular. the old popular wisdom that "he who does not honour the penny is not worth the thaler", has been able to uphold its lucky significance to this day.

The lucky penny, in times of the euro actually lucky penny, but hardly anyone says that, is a symbol of wealth. By symbolically giving it away, one wishes the recipient never to run out of money.

The horseshoe's task, on the other hand, is to protect the house and courtyard as a talisman and to deny strangers access.

In earlier times it was also nailed to ship masts - even Admiral Nelson made sure that the "Victory" did not set sail without this lucky charm.

Chimney sweeps or chimney sweeps are considered lucky charms because they were always the first to walk through the streets on New Year's morning and congratulated on the New Year.

Luckiness also comes from the flower pot. Of course we are talking about four-leaved clover, the "lucky clover", which is supposed to bring luck according to popular belief. he secret cloverleaf actually comes from Mexico and inspires secret desires and hopes at the turn of the year.

Lucky pigs, mostly made of marzipan, are also widespread. Already for the old Teutons the boar was sacred. The pig is regarded as a symbol of fertility and thus as a sign of prosperity and wealth. "To have had a stroke of luck" means to us that one has had a lot of luck. Those who had a lot of "pigs" were considered privileged and well situated by the Greeks and Romans.

The ladybird is considered to be the heavenly messenger of the Mother of God, hence the name. Protects the children and heals the sick when he flies to them. Never shake off or even kill - that brings bad luck.

>You can be sure if you add the lucky charms.

The trade has long since specialized in the marketing of superstition, which is still widespread today. Even in the supermarket you can buy lucky pigs made of marzipan, ladybirds made of chocolate, small pots with lucky clover, decorated with a chimney sweep or a lucky penny.

Egal, if it helps, many people think for sure, and in the end faith moves mountains. ;-)

New Year's Eve Party - the hangover afterwards

Some tips on how to avoid the notorious hangover ;-)

Fatty food slows down the absorption of alcohol in the blood. Take a high-fat meal before the drinking feast as an exception.

Still one type of alcohol, because the confusion of drinks guarantees a headache.

Avoid dark drinks such as red wine, brandy, cognac and whisky. Because they cause the worst headaches. Better to use white wine or vodka.

Nibbling chips, nuts and salt sticks to compensate for the loss of minerals caused by alcohol.

Dehydrated alcohol! Compensates for fluid loss. Drink plenty of water after the New Year's Eve party.

You didn't stick to the above tips?

You wake up the next morning or even at noon, your skull buzzes and your headache almost kills you?

Then only the hangover breakfast will help.

Large amounts of fresh fruit, wholemeal products, scrambled eggs, pickled herrings and lots of water. If possible, however, avoid taking the painkiller!

Instead, take a long walk. Plenty of fresh air is guaranteed to get you fit.

A nice Silverster-Party wishes you
