A New Year holiday is observed every 1 January in Estonia. New Year’s Eve celebrations on 31 December are complimented with a day of rest on the first day of January to recover from the day before.

You will find fireworks, cards, presents, parties, and a huge shopping rush in Tallinn, other seacoast towns, and all over the country are a big part of the celebrations. And private parties and dinners also figure large.
But it’s probably the tradition of going to public events like cultural performances at The Estonia Concert Hall, acrobatic acts, theatres for stage plays, and at other venues that marks Estonian New Year’s most distinctively.
