While the rest of us will soon see in the New Year, there will be thousands of homeless people who have little to celebrate.
They have to rely on the goodwill of others to find a hot meal and a bed for the night.
This year, one charity says that the number of people needing their help has increased.
Derek Doggett has lived on the streets for the best part of a decade. He lives in a tent. For the last 18 years he says he has spent about ten of them on the streets.
It's a lifestyle he has chosen but on Christmas Day with nowhere to go, he was given a bed and a hot meal by the town's Open Door charity.
On New Year's Day he will be left to his own devices.
The charity works all year round, but there's such a demand over Christmas that they decamp to a large church hall. Volunteers help out.
Andy Ellaway cooked the Christmas dinner - he was homeless himself. Now he helps other homeless people.
As well as tucking into a roast dinner, the homeless visitors can help themselves to mattresses, bedding and donated clothing. If you live rough, you need to keep warm.
The Open Door charity says more people than ever are needing help, and that number could increase even further in the new year.
