New Year’s History

Saturday, January 6th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

New Year’s History

Have you ever wondered why we celebrate the passing of one year and the beginning of the next? Or where and when it all started? Well, this year, you can find out!

This site is super simple to navigate too. You’ll read a lot of the main history right on the main page. I was surprised to learn that the celebration of New Year’s started in 4000 B.C.

The rest of your navigation will be found on the side menu. The sections are: New Year’s Traditions, Luck in New Year’s, New Year’s Toasts, New Year’s Poems, New Year’s Kids Songs and New Year’s Quotes.

New Year’s Traditions – Here you can learn about all sorts of traditions that have been practiced over the years. From making a resolution to the Rose parade to the significance of the New Year’s baby, you can find it all here.

Luck in New Year’s – Have you ever wondered why we all gather together to celebrate New Year’s? Well, it has a lot to do with garnering luck for in the New Year. Find out more here.

New Year’s Toasts – Looking for a different toast you can use this New Year’s? Well, then you’ve come to the right place. Here you will find a collection of different toasts. Some are serious, some are funny, some are sentimental, etc. Whatever kind you’re looking for, you may just find it here.

Other sections are pretty self-explanatory. You get poems, songs and quotes for New Year’s too. I was surprised at how much I really didn’t know about how New Year’s came to be celebrated. One of the more fascinating facts I came across was that in order for Julius Caesar to make January 1 the first day of the year, they had to have a year that was over 400 days long. Check it all out!

Happy New Year!
