Describe a new year celebration that you still remember
You should say:

A new year is one of the most memorable days in a year. Most of the day’s festivities begin from the late hours of December 31 and continue till the wee hours of January 1. Most of the people attend New Year parties, make new resolutions, eat good food, etc. People across all walks of life love celebrating New Year. They chew thoughts about the bygone days and welcome what lies ahead. Here, I’d like to talk about my childhood New Year celebrations, which are still vivid. I remember every activity that my little brother and I used to do, such as cutting the cake, song and dance, etc. It used to be a grand celebration on the last day of the year. My grandfather always organised a New year’s party in the backyard of our society, where all our friends and family would gather together to celebrate and welcome the New Year with a big bang. The place would be decorated well with lights, and everything from delicious cake to unique wines and high-end sound systems would be set up in the backyard. Everyone would gather before 11 PM at the premises, and they’d enjoy themselves until the clock struck 12. The entire place would be filled with voices of people screaming and hugging each other with happiness. It would be a wonderful sight to watch. Many other people would also make New Year’s resolutions and dance their hearts out. Somehow, this year, owing to the pandemic, I decided to be a little more low-key, so I stayed home and enjoyed the New year’s celebration with my friends virtually.
