The genesis of New Year's Day traces back to ancient civilizations like Babylon, where the first new moon after the vernal equinox marked the start of the year. Romans later ...tied it to Janus, the god of transitions, and with the Gregorian calendar in 1582, January 1st became widely accepted. Across millennia, diverse cultures have celebrated with unique customs. Today, #NewYearsDay signifies a global moment of reflection and hope, where people worldwide come together to welcome the fresh start, make resolutions and embrace the traditions that connect us across time and borders. #newyear #history #gregoriancalendar #babylon[+] Show More
