Question about English (US)

The most important holiday in my country is New Year’s Day for two reasons.
Firstly, this day is special for families. On that day, people usually gather at the same place to celebrate this annual reunion. They spend a wonderful time together eating traditional food.
Secondly, it is the perfect day for those who want to make an auspicious start to the year. On this day, a lot of Japanese people customarily visit local Shinto shrine to make their New Year’s resolution and wish for success and prosperity.
does this sound natural?

This is a model answer of TOEFL speaking. Is this natural? If you feel some awkwardness in this sentence, would you point out it?
