  • New Year’s Day (Año Nuevo) is a public holiday in Mexico on January 1 and marks the start of the New Year.

    Celebrate New Year’s Day

    Fireworks are lit and champagne glasses are toasted at the stroke of midnight between New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. “Feliz Año Nuevo!” is often the first expression that is shared among friends and family on January 1 – it simply means “Happy New Year”.

    Celebratory meals that are eaten on New Year’s Eve and reheated on New Year’s Day include: bacalao (dried, salted codfish); buñuelos (fried dough ball dessert); and ponche(fruit punch). It is common for family and friends to get together later during the day to eat the leftovers (recalentado).

    Public Life

    New Year’s Day is a national public holiday in Mexico. Banks, schools, government offices and many businesses are closed. People intending on travelling via public transport in Mexico should check with public transit authorities on any timetable or route changes.
