This contest is fueled by the following news: When the history of 2004 is written it may be regarded as the year of the runaway breast. There was Janet Jackson's Super Bowl fiasco. There was also Tara Reid's dress drop on the red carpet. And, there was the Desperate Housewives promotional ad for Monday Night Football. You can also add into the mix Colin Farrell's missing privates from the movie entitled A Home at the End of the World and the hidden puppet wrongdoings in Team America: World Police. 2004 - the year that was both seen and imagined.

The next 10 days before Dies Irae (Iom Kipur Jewish יום כיפור) are called "Tshuva days" ("Return" means return to the God). They are also called as "repentance days" or "tremble days". It's believed, that the fortune of the human being one year ahead is decided on the day of Rosh Hashnah. The first night of the festival, Jews wish one another: "Yes you will be registered and signed for a good year in the Book of Life!" Believers invest in light dresses. During the festival time apple an is dipped in honey. Chinese New Year: In China, the New Year is traditionally celebrated during the winter new moon. In the Gregorian calendar, this coincides with one of the days between the 21st of January and the 21st of February. Each New Year is related to one of the 12 animals and one of the five elements. The first day of the New Year starts with fire works and the ignition of perfumes. The fire works should frighten evil souls and bring appeasement and happiness to the families. At the end of the day, the family welcomes the deity to the home after their visit to the world of souls where they "gave a report" about the passed year, and that contributes respect to the ancestors.

As per ancient customs, an Old lady "Befina" brings gifts. But she presents gifts after Ney Year on the 7th of January. *108 times bells ring in Japan during the first night of the New Year. Each ring of the bell conforms to one of the crapulent. In total there are six: greediness, foolishness, anger, light-mindedness, indecision and envy, though each crapulent has 18 different shades, which totals 108 rings of bell. * In England, except for the Christmas tree, the house is decorated with mistletoe branches. Mistletoe blossoms are available even on lamps and luster. And as per customs, you can kiss the person standing in the center of the room under the mistletoe blossom. * In Miami, New Year comes in the hottest time of the Year, that's why it is celebrated as the "Festival of water", when people pour water on one another.
