The article attempts to establish the cultural status of the New Year’s Eve, both as a total of traditional social practices and as a cultural tourism phenomenon. The author stresses its relation to the series of Carnival celebrations. They are connected mostly through a common category used to identify them – the rites of passage. Thanks to this category it is possible to grasp the social function of The New Year’s Eve omitting symbolic-cultural meanings of the traditional-folk activities underlying them.
