New Year’s holidays in Azerbaijan this time will last 5 days – from December 31 to January 4.
On January 31, the country will celebrate the Day of Solidarity of all Azerbaijanis across the world. This day is also a national holiday.
JAMnews correspondents spoke with some residents of Baku, who shared their impressions of the outgoing year and expectations for the new 2022.
“I remember the past year as a continuation of the annoying pandemic. But there were also happy moments. We were finally allowed to hold weddings, and I went to several such celebrations at once. In general, I would call the year not the most successful one.
In 2022 I look forward to the end of the pandemic and the return to normal life, which everyone really misses”.
“All the past years are beautiful and remarkable in their own way. I think you shouldn’t remember bad events, the life of our generation is not all sweet.
In the new year, I look forward to the fulfillment of my desires. I hope I will meet my love, and 2022 will be remembered for a lifetime ”.
“In the outgoing year 2021, my daughter went to school. This was probably the best event in my entire life.
From the new year, I expect only the best news, events, and real happiness both for myself and for all our people”.
“What can I say? The year was post-war, a little difficult for all of us. The economy is not at its finest, the state has a lot of worries – the restoration of the liberated territories, the construction of cities and villages. All this is not easy, but the people must not forget anything.
I hope that in the new year everything will be a little bit better”, he said.
