New Year’s Eve is one of the favorite celebration days for many people.
The earliest known New Year celebrations were in Mesopotamia and date back to 2000 B.C.
The early Romans used March 1 as New Year's Day. Other cultures used the autumn equinox or the winter solstice to mark the new year.
1582 - The Gregorian calendar, which marks January 1 as the new year, is adopted by the Roman Catholic Church.
January is named after Janus, the god with two faces, one looking forward and one looking backward.
"Auld Lang Syne" is traditionally sung at midnight on New Year's Eve.
The words auld lang syne mean "times gone by".
Most New Year's traditions are believed to ensure good luck for the coming year. Many parts of the United States observe the tradition of eating black-eyed peas on New Year's Day for good luck. Ancient Persians gave New Year's gifts of eggs, which symbolized productiveness.
