British have a lot of holidays they celebrate during the year. These celebrations are divided into royal and religious, traditional and modern. Some of them are called bank holidays because on those days all banks are closed. Here you can look at some the most favorable of them.
1. New Year’s Day
New Year’s Day is a bank holiday in UK. On the evening of the 31th of December British arrange parties at home or go out with their families to gather on the main squares on the towns and villages to sing “Auld lang syne” written by Robert Burns and celebrate New Year’s beginning. Then many people usually promise to make their dream true, break bad habits or achieve new goals. In London on New Year’s Eve citizens watch as the Big Ben rings at midnight.
