Learning about the history and traditions of your nation, going back to your roots is important. The Old New Year or the Orthodox New Year is an informal traditional holiday in Ukraine, celebrated as the start of the New Year by the Julian calendar. The Old New Year falls on January 14 in the Gregorian calendar. And The Times Square Ball is a time ball located in New York City's Times Square (USA) and it gives the signal to start of the new year on January 1. As for our English Conversation Club, we had a costume party on January 13. The members played games and quizzes, tested their knowledge with fun facts, discussed the traditions and much more. Then we had tea with cookies.
