January 1st is my half birthday, but I never celebrate it. I do wish people Happy New Year on Jan. 1st as most of the people I know in the USA do mark the civil/secular new year in some fashion.

Perhaps but super cold and no available toilets for people and if one leaves the area one is not allowed back in.

Sounds like a bottle full of Xanax for me! It's a bit frustrating never to be able to do anything on your birthday because the entire city is celebrating "First Night" (as happens here in Boston).
