New Year is one of the oldest holidays that is still celebrated, but the exact date and nature of the celebration changes over time. It originated thousands of years ago in ancient Babylon, celebrated as an eleven-day festival on the first day of spring. During this time, many cultures use the sun and moon cycle to determine the “first” day of the year. It wasn’t until Julius Caesar adopted the Julian calendar that January 1st became a common day of celebration.

The content of the celebrations also varies. While the early celebrations were more pagan, marking earthly cycles, the Christian tradition celebrates the feast of Christ’s circumcision on New Year’s Eve. Roman Catholics also often celebrate the feast of the Virgin Mary, a feast in honor of Mary.

However, in the twentieth century, the holiday grew into a celebration of its own and for the most part was separated from the general connection with religion. It has become a celebration of nationality, relationships, and introspection, rather than a religious holiday, although many people still follow old traditions.
