Teaching children about the new year I think is important, so they become aware of the changes the new year brings, example they know that in the new year they go back to school.
They may not understand about the new year but I think it is important to make them aware of what the new year means.
I want my son to get to know that we celebrate the new year, by taking him out, allow him if he wants to, to stay up late to see the fireworks up close or on the TV.
Let him see that we kiss when the clock strikes 12 and that we sing afterwards. If he decides later in life not to celebrate the new year then that is fine, it is up to him, but it good for him to see that the new years is a good thing not something bad.
So lets raise our glasses and I wish you all a happy new year. See you in 2019.
