Happy New Year
Celebrating the beginning of a new year cycle has been part of civilization since ancient times. The Jewish calendar, which is based on a lunar cycle, celebrates the new year with penitence and reflection. Mesopotamians of Iraq celebrated their new year as early as 2000BC in conjunction with the spring equinox while Phoenicians, Egyptians, and Persians began their new year with the fall equinox.
Ancient Greeks observed the coming of a new year at the time of the winter solstice. The name of the month which is most closely associated with today's Gregorian new year is derived from the pagan god of gates, "Janus," who was honored by the Romans when they called the first month of their new year "January."
The ancient civilizations centered their calendar around the lunar cycle but in 46.B.C. Julius Caesar introduced a new calendar that was based on the solar cycle. This calendar set the new year on January 1st. The early Christian Church felt that this date was too closely tied with pagan beliefs and they banned it, preferring to celebrate the new year in conjunction with Christmas or, in some areas, together with the March Feast of the Annunciation and Easter. Between the 1500s and the 1700s the Christian World gradually adopted the Gregorian calendar which restored New Years celebration to January 1st.
New Years Customs
There are dozens of customs – some quite old and some rather new that enhance the celebration of New Years Celebration around the globe. One of the most beloved traditions involves playing and singing Auld Lang Syne, an old Scottish song whose words and notes have come to symbolize people's hopes and prayers for a good new year. Scotland is also the place where another tradition plays out -- first-footing – which takes place shortly after midnight on New Year's eve when neighbors visit each other's homes, bringing gifts and New Year's wishes.
In Greece, New Years is intertwined with the Festival of St. Basil. In homes throughout the country Greeks serve Vassilopittas – St. Basil's cakes – with silver or gold coins baked inside to give the finder an especially joyous new year.
In the southern United States many people prepare New Years feasts with "Hoppin' Johns" – black eyed peas and ham hocks – while millions of Americans tune into their TVs to see the ball drop in New York's Times Square at midnight and watch the Rose Bowl football game on January 1st.
Spanish celebrants traditionally eat twelve grapes at midnight which is supposed to promise them twelve happy months in the coming year.
New Years night in Holland centers around burning Christmas trees in neighborhood bonfires to purge the old and welcome in the new.
New Years Wishes
Making New Years' resolutions and wishes is a part of new years celebrations in all cultures. Through visits, baked goods and other types of rituals, it's customary to use the coming of a new year to express one's hopes and prayers for a good year to come. The most oft-expressed wishes are for health and happiness but financial security comes in a close third.
