The capital is gearing up for New Year celebrations in a festive fashion, with New Year cards, New Year hats and a new street party starting at 11.30pm.
But the celebrations should be as relaxed as possible as well as celebratory.
New Year, which marks the start of winter, is usually the most stressful time of the year for New Zealanders.
But there are some things to remember for those who are enjoying the new year with friends.
The most important thing is to make time to get out and celebrate.
New Zealand has a long tradition of celebrating New Year with people of all ages and backgrounds.
So, how do you celebrate in Wellington?
Here are a few of our favourites.
‘Celebrate with friends’ New Year New Year Cards are a popular holiday gift.
They come in the form of envelopes and cards, with a New Year message or greeting, a special gift or a special card.
It is also possible to include an image of a loved one, with the date and time in a special message.
New Years are also an opportunity to share a bit of your personal history.
For instance, if you have recently moved to New Zealand, you might receive a card with your name and date of birth and a message that explains what you’ve been up to.
You can also send cards for a special New Year card with a special event, such as Christmas.
‘Enjoy New Year’ New year greetings and holiday cards are also popular.
But remember, this is a time to celebrate the year you are born, not to get drunk or indulge in your most indulgent behaviour.
You might be tempted to celebrate with a drink, but don’t, as New Year drinks can be a bit over the top.
New year gift cards are great gifts for those of you who like to celebrate on the big day.
‘Get in touch with the past’ New Years Day is a day when we remember the many great New Years that have happened since 1900.
The first New Years were on December 19, 1901, when New Zealand was still part of the British Empire.
Many people were looking forward to New Years Eve in particular, because the next day would mark the start to the celebrations of the New Year.
But in recent years, many celebrations have been postponed, including the ones commemorating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Queen Victoria.
Celebrate New Year by giving cards, cards for New Years, cards to someone special and even a New Years photo album.
It’s also a great opportunity to get in touch.
‘Do your part for NZ’ New Zealand is home to some of the world’s most talented people and the government has worked hard to promote New Year in this way.
People of all backgrounds can get involved with the celebration by visiting the local museums, reading local newspapers and participating in events organised by organisations like the NZ Tourism Board.
‘It’s time to start again’ New years celebrations can also be a great time to take stock of the things you have done in the last year.
Whether you are looking to start a new career, look for a new job or get a new house, a visit to the local shops and restaurants can be the best way to do that.
The New Year will be on January 2, 2019.
In the meantime, you can enjoy a cold drink at home or go to the beach or play outside, just like the old days.
And remember, New Years is the start and the end of the new Year.
