  2. mentioning Chinese New Year in this video seemed really weird and out of place. I had to listen to it about 3 times to try to make sense of it, but it still didn't make any sense.  FYI,  Chinese celebrate both the Western New Year and their own New Year

  3. The new year in my country is celebrated with a dinner at midnight, more exactly with a typical food named "natilla" which is a kind of flan added with cinnamon and raisins, it can have some flavours. The "buñuelos" are another typically food ate at this dates. It consists in a cassava flour balls or a wheat flour balls mixed with "queso costeño" "costeño cheese", a kind of salty cheese. In the churchs, the priests make a "rooster eucaristhy" in spanish means "misa de gallo", celebrated between 8 PM and 11 PM at 31st of december. Those are some forms to celebrate the new year in Colombia

  4. I guess the Biggest American Celebration is "Dia de los Muertps". Celebrated from Chile in the South of the American Continent to Canada in the North.
