New Year’s Eve Events: Countdown to 2017
New Year’s Eve in the Philippines is usually celebrated by a multitude of traditions and superstitions. There would be people in the streets, lighting up firecrackers to drive away the bad luck. Some would be in their best polka dotted clothes, and there will be some – kids and adults alike – who’d be jumping as high as they could as soon as the clock strikes 12, marking the start of the new year.

While there may be some people who prefers spending this holiday at home, there are also some who’d rather go to New Year’s countdown events with their friends and loved ones to enjoy the performances from various artists and to see the fireworks that color the dark sky at midnight.
