NYE Facts



Hello blogland, how is everyone this fine Monday morning?

I am shaking all over inside and out from head to foot as per usual.

Anyway since tomorrow is the 31st I will share some facts about New Year's Eve.

New Year celebrations happened as early as 2000BC

Early Romans used the 1st March as the New Year.

January is named after Janus, the God with two faces, one looking forward and the other looking backwards.

Ancient Persians gave New Year's gifts of eggs, which symbolised productiveness

The words auld lang syne mean "times gone by".
The first ball dropping celebration atop One Times Square was held on December 31, 1907.
