Happy New Year!

Welcome in the New Year with some good books!

 "Happy New Year" by Emily Kelley shows some of the various traditions that cultures around the world have for celebrating a brand new year.  Some countries celebrate a new year in the spring or the fall.  In Sierra Leone and Iran families clean out their houses, in Japan people believe laughing on New Year's day will bring them good luck, and farmers in Belgium wish their animals a Happy New Year!
