New Year’s Day 2025 and 2026

The Isle of Man celebrates New Year’s Day with a public holiday every 1 January, as does most of the rest of the world. However, the celebrations really begin on New Year’s Eve and reach a high point with the turning of the clock from 11:59pm on 31 December to midnight on 1 January.

New Year’s Day is a time of resolutions and starting fresh for some, while for others it is spent recovering from a big, late night spent with friends and family.

Traditions here include fireworks shows, family dinners, midnight countdowns, and New Year’s resolutions. However, many flock to The Isle of Man this time of year while on holiday to enjoy its unique landscape, history, culture, and events.

Most people stay up to midnight either at home or at a public event and cheer when the clock strikes 12. They may then drink a toast of champagne or simply greet everyone they can find with a hearty “Happy New Year!”
