New Years Fact

January 7, 2013
By Kyle Adams of Thomas Nelson HS



Because of the different calendar system used in ancient Babylon, the actual New Year started with the New Moon., which was followed by the first day of spring in March. In that time, New Year's Eve and any celebrations associated with it transpired over 11 days. Every day was a different type of celebration which usually signified rebirth, a new period of blossoming and a new season of crops.
