Old years eve

Post by Bsasmith » Sun Dec 30, 2018 5:27 am

At this time of the year I think of my last year in England (1986) and spending new year in Norfolk before emigrating to Australia and my colleagues referring to old years day or old years eve which I found very odd and wondered if anyone can shed any light on its origin

Welcome. You have started with a good problem.
I am afraid that I have never heard of the celebration.

If you type "Old Year's Night" in the WW search bar, there's a bit of information from a discussion here, a few years ago. It's a term I have never heard.
