New Year’s Pooja- Traditions, Resolutions and Date with History

Nothing gives us more motivation than the start of a new year. According to the Gregorian calendar, New Years Day is celebrated on January 1st.

History of New Year celebrations

The celebrations associated with New Years, and choose January 1st as the New Year's Day, originate in the Roman Period. The early Roman calendar, assumed to have been made by the founders of Rome, Romulus, consisted of 10 months and 304 days. According to this calendar, each New Year was to start at the Vernal Equinox.

However, over the centuries, the calendar fell out of sync with the Sun, and the emperor, Julius Caesar, decided to solve the difficulty by consult with his most prominent and mathematicians and astronomers, thereby introducing the Julian calendar.

The Julian calendar closely resembles the present-day Gregorian calendar that is followed today by most countries in the world.

In his improvement, Caesar instituted January as the 1st day of the year, partly to honor the month’s namesake: Janus, the ‘Roman God of Beginning’. It is assumed that Janus had 2 faces, which allowed him to look back into the past and forward into the future.

This is probably how the traditions and celebrations, which are now linked to the festival, came into place!

And the celebrations continue.

While each culture has its own customs and traditions for celebrating the New Year’s Day, there are some ordinary themes for whole cultures. As the New Year’s Day approach, people go about doing some, if not all, of these chores- house cleaning, paying off debts, returning borrowed objects, reflecting on one's shortcoming, mending quarrels, giving gifts. This gives them a feeling of gratification of starting a New Year on a fresh page/note.

Some even regard New Year’s Day as one of the most active-minded holidays, because it stimulate and pushes people to re-evaluate their lives, and make a decision on plans of action to make them better. Mostly, it gives people a possibility to make resolutions/positive change that the person wants to work towards in the New Year.
