About New Year's Day
New Year’s Day is one of the oldest holidays in existence. New Year’s Day was first celebrated about four thousand years ago in ancient Babylon. New Year's Day is on January 1, first day of the year on the Gregorian. It was also January 1 in ancient Rome, although other dates were also used. Excluding Israel, all countries using the Gregorian calendar celebrate New Year’s Day on January 1 as a public holiday. Most cities set off fireworks upon the stroke of midnight when New Year’s Day begins. While New Year’s Day is observed on January 1 on the Gregorian calendar, the Julian calendar’s corresponding day to January 1 is January 14, so Eastern Orthodox Churches following the Julian calendar celebrate New Year’s Day on January 14 instead. Some Christian denominations observe New Year’s Day as the Feast of Christ’s Circumcision. The Tournament of Roses Parade was first held in 1886 and this tradition continues today in Pasadena, California, an event that is highlighted by the annual Rose Bowl football contest. The song “Auld Lang Syne” has also become synonymous with New Year’s Day celebrations in English speaking countries all over the world in different variations since the sixteenth century. New Year’s Resolutions are also a common tradition. Some of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions are to Lose Weight, Manage Debt, Save Money, Get a Better Job, Get Fit, Eat Right, Get a Better Education, Drink Less Alcohol, Quit Smoking, Reduce Stress, Take a Trip or Volunteer to Help Others.
