New Year’s Day 2025 and 2026 in Jersey

Jersey celebrates New Year’s Day with a public holiday every 1 January, as does most of the rest of the world. However, the celebrations really begin on New Year’s Eve and reach a high point with the turning of the clock from 11:59pm on 31 December to midnight on 1 January.

New Year’s Day is a time of resolutions and starting fresh for some, while for others it is spent recovering from a big, late night spent with friends and family.

As the largest of the Channel Islands and one of the most popular, Jersey has a sizable influx of visitors from the UK, France, and beyond for the New Year holiday season. Locals too get out and celebrate the passing of the old year and the coming of the new in grand style.

Hotels and resorts may not be as full as in summer months, but there are events to attend, such as fireworks shows, galas, street parties, fancy dinners at local diners, and more.

For the most part, Jersey residents observe New Year’s Eve and Day as do those living in the UK proper. The island is a tourist magnet for those off on holiday in the UK and has some unique events.
