The nation celebrated the 31st night with various activities and welcomed New Year 2018 with jubilant celebrations and good wishes for family, friends, colleagues and fresh resolutions for the wellbeing of society and the country.

Many people across the world celebrated the 31st night especially the youth with carnival mood and take rich dishes like barbecued mutton.

The South Pacific island state Samoa was the first country to welcome 2018 with celebrations including fireworks, dancing and juggling. The nation has been the first to see the New Year since 2011 when it moved from the eastern side of the international date line to the west side.

New Zealand followed Samoa with hundreds of people gathered in Auckland city centre to participate in the country`s prime attraction of New Year celebrations.

Like countries across the world, the celebration began last night as the clock stroke 12 midnight in Bangladesh. The capital city Dhaka started buzzing with cracking sounds of fireworks few minutes before midnight that continued for more than an hour with random intervals.

People of all ages in different cities including Chittagong, Rajshahi, Khulna, Sylhet, Barisal and Rangpur celebrated the 31st night with a luxurious festival and welcomed the New Year with jubilant celebrations.

The 1st day of January is often marked as a national holiday in different countries.

Celebrate the New Year does not mean to farewell the old year and welcome the New Year. In order to set new life in New Year, you have to set new goals or to move towards to the new destination; so those new opportunities are created in the New Year.

In general, there will come many opportunities to get you back on this occasion.

Actually, the fear of change is such an obstacle that we should aim to win. So the key to success is bringing something new in the ‘to-do-list’ of 2018.

Experts say that to start the New Year you have to prepare to restate life. In New Year you have to plan not only new targets but also plan to win over failures in the past.

Actually, the whole idea of the plan should be made clear in your head. So you have to make a personal goal in professional life that only you can sort them up.

Believe that you are the best since the first day of the year. At least you are mature enough to `Fresh Start` in January.
