Not sure what to do on New Year's day? Read this!


New years eve

New Year's Day is a public holiday in almost every country that observes the Gregorian calendar, making it the world's most widely observed public holiday! This gives us the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with family or friends. If you still don't know what to do on this day, read on for some ideas!

1. Sleep in and get yourself a delicious English breakfast in Sliema

Unless your new year’s resolution is to get on a strict diet following all those mince pies, then why not get yourself a late English breakfast in Malta’s shopping capital, Sliema? Most cafés offer English breakfast way past noon, and some even offer it all day long, which is perfect for those who want to sleep in after the New Year’s Eve celebrations.

2. Get some fresh air and plan a quick picnic

Maltese winters are, thankfully, quite mild, meaning you can expect lots of sunshine with clear blue skies. A picnic on New Year’s day is a fantastic way to start off the new year on a serene note while the kids play catch!

3. Walk the walk

If you can’t stand the sight of food following the Christmas festivities, then you should consider a walk or hike with friends or family in Malta’s beautiful countryside! If you’re a bit more athletic and want to try something new, you can rent a bike and ride along the seafront as the roads tend to be relatively empty on New Year’s day.

4. Games night (or day)

If you haven’t made any plans, and you also don’t feel like getting out of the house, a games night is the perfect activity for you! Get your family or friends over, no cooking needed, just order some takeout and get your favourite board games on the table. If you don’t have any, don’t worry, there are plenty of games you can play with things that you can find around the house! There are plenty of websites with ideas and tutorials that you can copy!

We wish you a wonderful new year and hope it brings you and your loved ones many blessings!
