\u201cRealistic new year's resolutions:\n\nGet slightly older each day\nEat more cheese\nDiscard old socks\nDrink the same amount of tea \nNever run out of biscuits \nSay \u201cgetting there\u201d a lot \nMuddle through\u201d
Meanwhile, nations around the world are all looking to celebrate the New Year in their own individual ways.
The English will sing Auld Lang Syne and dance, as well as make resolutions for the year ahead and there will also be fireworks displays across the country, most notably in London.
