Hello everybody,
In Serbia and Montenegro, New Year is celebrated at homes with family, at main squares of the cities or in the discos or pubs. Christmas is on 7th January  and we also have Orthodox New Year (otherwise known as Serbian New Year) on 14th January. Christmas is celebrates in home with family.
Best regards.

Most of Vietnamese people go to the centre of Saigon to watch firework display in the New Year's Eve. Some people have parties at restaurants, and some spend their time at home with family.

Better way to make our listening good.
