Just thought I share this with all of you about the meaning of midnight at New Years Eve. It was something I found while searching on the internet and I never knew. Here goes:

The idea of making deafening noise on New Years Eve at midnight is to drive away the evil spirits who flocked to the living at this climactic season with a great wailing of horns and shouts and beating of drums. This is why at the stroke of midnight we hear the deafening cacophony of sirens, car horns, boat whistles, party horns, church bells, drums, pots and pans - anything that serves the purpose of producing a devil chasing din.
