Strange New Year traditions around the world

The big New Year’s Eve tradition in Denmark involves smashing plates against your friends’ front doors. It’s a measure of popularity to find a heap of broken china on the doorstep at midnight – according to the tradition, this brings good luck, so the more smashed plates, the more you’ll get.
It’s also tradition to jump off a chair at the stroke of midnight – symbolising the leap into the New Year.
