The New Year Around The World

December 31, 2014 in Daily Bulletin

Alice Truong wrote about what New Year’s eve will look like around the world:

  • On average Russians stay up the latest, partying until 3:43am.
  • This is thought to be because Christmas was banned in the former Soviet Union and so Russians took to having a mega-celebration for both Christmas and New Year’s on December 31st.
  • The Chinese go to bed the earliest, turning in by 12:42am.
  • One third of all Americans go to sleep before midnight and wake to find themselves in the New Year.
