In most countries, New Year’s is about partying all night and sleeping until noon the next day. In Belgium though, farmers make sure to wake up nice and early on New Year’s Day. They fight the hangover and head out to their stables to wish their cows a happy new year.

The farmers believe that by sharing their good wishes it will bring them good luck with their crop in the upcoming year.
