New Years Eve - a time to celebrate and reflect on another year with friends and family, and look forward to new beginnings. But did you know that December 31st marks several unique holidays besides New Years Eve?

National Champagne Day

While true champagne only comes from France’s Champagne region, there is plenty of bubbly available from Italy, California and even the South of France.  Ringing in the New Year is the perfect opportunity each year to celebrate National Champagne Day.

Pop open a bottle of your favorite champagne. Remember to always drink responsibly and to never drink and drive!

National Make Up Your Mind Day

This day is set aside to encourage us to quit wavering, to take a side, to follow through with a decision and stick to it.  As New Year’s resolutions go, this may be the day to decide which ones to declare. 

Been hesitating on making some decisions? This is the day to finally make your mind up.

National No Interruptions Day

No Interruptions Day is observed annually on the last work day of the year.  This is a day set aside for getting organized for the new year by cleaning up your work space without interruptions. 

Turn off the cell phone, ignore your personal e-mails, close your door and enjoy the peace of no interruptions for a full day.

Universal Hour of Peace

Created as a simple step toward a war free world, the Universal Hour of Peace is observed from 11:30 p.m. December 31st to 12:30 a.m. January 1st.

Conceived by Dr. Barbara Condron at the School of Metaphysics, the first Universal Hour of Peace was celebrated October 24, 1995. It coincided with the 50th anniversary of the United Nations and the autumnal equinox.  The following year it was moved to January 1st at Noon GMT.  It is now celebrated from 11:30 p.m. on December 31st to 12:30 a.m. on January 1st.
