Would you rather spend January 1st nursing a huge hangover or doing something really fun? You could of course hit the New Year sales but so many start before Jan 1 these days. TV is boring and often New Year’s Day can be a bit of an anti-climax after all the fun of Christmas and New Year’s Eve. But not if you spend it in one of these places:
1. The Bahamas: Junkanoo
Held between 26th December and 1st January, the largest Junkanoo street parade takes place in Nassau Paradise Island. It's one of the best events of Jan 1st 2016, offering dancing and live music performed by teams of local dancers donning elaborate, spectacular costumes they spent all year making by hand. Parades, fireworks, delicious food and stunning beaches - what else do you need to make New Year's Day the best ever?
