4. Complete the words by outlining the letter "R." Then, draw an exclamation point (!). To do so, first draw a small oval near the base of the "R." Above it, draw a long curved line that doubles back upon itself. This exclamation point is three-dimensional, so continue one side of the line over its top, then draw curved lines overlapping the other end of the line to nearly enclose a curved rectangular shape. It should look like the top of the punctuation mark is folded over on itself. Then, erase part of the "W." Close the opening by drawing a rounded triangle with a circle at its uppermost point. The "W" is now wearing a party hat!

5. Erase part of the letter "Y." Draw a curved line across the opening, and a rounded triangle around it. At the top, use "U" shaped lines to enclose a round starburst shape. The "Y" is wearing a party hat, too. Draw curved lines around the "H," and small five-pointed stars above the word "HAPPY."

Then, enclose one small and two large round shapes on top to form the bow.

Learn More About The Happy New Year Card Drawing

New Year festivals are celebrated around the world. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, they are "among the oldest and the most universally observed."

Did you know? Not everyone celebrates New Year's on December 31/January 1. The earliest New Year festivals in Mesopotamia were variously celebrated in March, September, October, or December. The Western world adopted the current calendar several hundred years ago.

The Chinese New Year falls in late January and early February, and in Thailand the New Year is celebrated in March or April.

Celebrations differ throughout the world. In Asia, many customs have religious significance. Elsewhere, New Year's Eve is considered a party to "note the passing of time with both regret and anticipation." A baby is a common symbol of the new year.
