-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The First Ever New Year’s Celebration was over 4,000 Years Ago 

It was Julius Caesar, the Emperor of Rome who first made January (Janus) of the calendar year a national Holiday. Janus is the name of the Roman god of doors and gates. Janus had two faces, one that looked forward and one that looked back. Caesar believed that this was fitting for the day. Originally, the ancient Romans used March 1st as New Year’s Day. In 1582, the Roman Catholic Church officially adopted January 1st as the New Year.

love you!
Kim
