Importance of New Year : Happy New Year 2018
The question that often strikes our mind is, why do we celebrate New Year? What is the importance of New Year? And many more questions like, isn’t it like any other day of year!

You promise that you will work harder, study hard and you will overcome all the shortcomings that were there the last year.

History of New Year
It is said that the concept of celebrating New Year was introduced in Mesopotamia in 2000 BC. It was celebrated in mid-march around the time of vernal equinox. 

The early Roman calendar having only 10 months, starting from March marked March 1 as the New Year. January and February were not even there in the calendar. They were added by the second king of Rome, Numa Pompilius in 700 B.C. but the calendar fell out of sync over the centuries. Then in 46 B.C. the emperor Julius Caesar introduced the Julian calendar and insisted January 1 as the first day of year that is the New Year.

 It was mainly to honor the Months name which was on Janus the god of gateway and beginning whose two faces allowed him to look back in past and forward into the future. In medieval Europe replace the New Year on January 1 with more religious day that is December 25 (birth anniversary of Jesus Christ) but later Pope Gregory XIII again established January 1 as the New Year and December 25 turned into Christmas Day. 

Even today both the terms Christmas and New Year are used together.
In modern days that calendar that is followed all over the world is the Gregorian calendar. It marks the beginning of New Year celebration from the eve of December 31st (New Year Eve) and goes all the way to the early hours of January 1. These days the tradition of celebrating New Year is generally attending parties, dancing, singing and enjoying with friends and family. People also take New Year resolution in order to overcome the shortcomings that were there the previous year.
