New Year's Day in Turkey - TOPICS Online Magazine

New Year's Day in Turkey - TOPICS Online Magazine

In Turkey, we celebrate the New Year on December 31st. Many people celebrate by having a special New Year's dinner with their close family members and/or friends. The traditional food is generally turkey. Although some families prefer to decorate with a New Year's pine, the general attitude is not to decorate anything special.

The last day of December there are many special entertainment programs on TV. Each TV channel tries to present the best program for New Year's Eve. This Turkish celebration starts early in the evening and lasts till early morning. That night all places are full, and you have to make a reservation a long time before that night if you want to celebrate it out of home.
