Event Information:

In Belgium, New ear's Eve is called Sint Sylvester Vooravond ("Saint Sylvester Eve") or simply Oudjaar ("old year"). Cosy family parties, called réveillon in the french speaking part of Belgium, are thrown. On television, a stand-up comedian reviews the past year after which a musical or variety show indicates midnight, when everyone kisses, exchanges good luck greetings, and toasts Champagne to the new year and to absent relatives and friends. Many people fire off their own fireworks, and those who don't go into the street to watch them. Most cities have their own fireworks display, the most famous being at Mont des Arts in Brussels. the Albertine Park on the Mont des Arts will be the backdrop for the traditional New Year's Eve fireworks. At midnight the fireworks that will light up Brussels will begin, the areas reserved for the general public for this magical moment are: Place Royale, rue Montagne de la Cour, Place de l’Albertine and Boulevard de l’Empereur.

Finding a place to stay in Brussels on New Years Eve is easy of booked well in advance, as there are a range of hotels, bed and breakfasts and guesthouses to accommodate virtually any budget. Recommended establishments include the Hotel Metropole, Royal Windsor Hotel Grand Place, PANTONE Design Hotel, Novotel Brussels Centre Tour Noire, Hotel Le Plaza and Sandton Brussels Centre.

In Belguim, January 1 is called Nieuwjaarsdag and children read their 'new year's letter' and give holiday greeting cards featuring golden cherubs and angels, colored roses and ribbon-tied garlands to parents and godparents, on decorated paper which they saved money to buy. Belgian farmers also wish their animals a happy New Year for blessings. The Kunstberg or Mont des Arts, meaning "hill/mountain of the arts", is a historic site in the center of Brussels, Belgium.

The showcase square was created for the Universal Exposition held in Brussels in 1910. It featured a park and a monumental staircase with cascading fountains descending the gentle slope from Place Royale down to Boulevard de l'Empereur/Keizerslaan. The original square was destroyed during the post-war construction frenzy known as Brusselization; between 1954 and 1965, the square and its surroundings gave way to massive, severely geometric postmodern structures such as the Royal Library of Belgium and the Congress Palace.
