Wish You All a Very Happy New Year 2016

New Year is considered the oldest of all holidays, since it is believed to have been observed for the first time, nearly 4000 years ago in Babylon but this is just the tip of the iceberg as we delve deeper into facts about the New Year that you probably didn’t know…

-> In Finland, each new year family and friends gather to burn metal in a pan for a ritual called “molybdomancy”. The Finns inspect the shadows the metal casts by candlelight, as those shapes are supposed to predict the future.

-> The 8th most common resolution is to get along better with someone else, according to a 2012 Harris poll.

-> Why does the New Year begin on January 1st? Because our contemporary (Gregorian) calendar is based on the Julian one (named after none other than the Big Ceas) and he made January month numero uno (which is latin for “number one”)

-> January is named after the Roman god, ‘Janus’ with two faces
