January 1

New Years New Years Celebrations are the oldest of all holidays practiced today. 4000 years ago in ancient Babylonia the New Year was celebrated with the new moon on the first day of spring. This celebration lasted 11 days. The Month of January did not exist until around 700 BC. In Rome 153 BC New Years was moved from March to January. But this practice did not take hold, except in Rome. Calendars changed from the original lunar calendar to the solar calendar of Julius Ceasar, days became so inaccurate, Ceasar let a year last 445 days to put things back on track. In 1582 AD the Gregorian calendar appeared but not everyone used it. It took almost 200 years of New Years celebrations some of which were still celebrated in March and others in January. In 1752 AD New Years celebrations finally came together and has been practiced on December 31 – January 1 ever since.
