MOST of us come together annually to celebrate the dawning of a new year.

Many will dust off their finery to join the revelling hordes in pubs and clubs while the rest of us stay at home and complain about prices and how busy said establishments are at this time of year.

These pictures show celebrations not just on New Year’s Eve night but other events that come with it.

The Daily Echo wishes all its readers the very best for the coming year and beyond.
