THE HISTORY OF NEW YEAR'S EVE
*Like many things we enjoy in today's world...
bubble baths, Bacchanalian Festivals, marauding across the landscape invading countries to the North...we owe the celebration of New Year's Eve on December 31st to Julius Caesar. Back in 46BC, he instituted the Julian Calendar which
established January 1st as the first day of the year.
The Babylonians were actually the first to celebrate a New Year about 4000 years ago,
but their revelry focused on the first new moon after the Spring Equinox.
For the Romans, Januarius was the first month of the year, named after Janus, the Roman god of beginnings. He (the god) looked both backward to the past and forward to the future. The Romans would exchange gifts, hang laurel wreaths and
attend kick-ass parties headlined by Coldplay.
The Catholic Church originally condemned these celebrations as paganism but eventually saw the Light and created religious observances to correspond with these holidays.
It is therefore supremely ironic that January 1st is the Feast of Christ's Circumcision.
So, on this celebration of the impending New Year, we remember the past 365 days with fondness and look forward to the next 365 days with glorious anticipation.
