#redirect[[31 December]]
'''New Year's Eve''' was another name by which [[31 December]] was known. As the last day of the year —at least according to some [[Earth]] calendars — it was often a time for celebrations and parties, generally centred around midnight, when the last few seconds of a year could be experienced. Though the parties were often raucous, some individuals marked the occasion with sombre reflection on the passage of time.
It was not a well-known holiday in the [[Second Great and Bountiful Human Empire]], as [[Sara Kingdom]] did not recognise it. ([[TV]]: ''[[The Daleks' Master Plan]]'')
