The moment that we all eagerly await, a new starting point for some of us, and new plans and decisions for some of us, the new year has now arrived. Isn't it the right of all of us to get rid of the traces and tiredness of 2021, which we spent with bitter and sweet? The negative effects of the pandemic, the world agenda and many other things were after us this year. Maybe we lost, maybe we took new paths, maybe we counted where we were. But no matter what, another year has been lost from our lives. In this period when we understand the value of time, we can set new goals for ourselves as we start the new year. We hope for the new year so that we can realize what we want to do, we wish you luck. But we know that it is up to us to do what we want. One step is all it takes. As long as you don't lose your motivation.

So we thought and moved, so we made a list of the festivals organized in our country so that you can start the new year with fun.
