New Year's Day

It’s the first day of the New Year! The tradition of celebrating New Year’s Day began over 4,000 years ago in ancient Babylon. During that era, the calendar changed over on the first day of spring. In 153 BC, the Roman Senate changed the date for New Year's to January 1.

Today, New Year's Day signifies a time of new beginnings and resolutions. There are many traditions and festivals that take place on New Year's Day around the world. In California, people decorate carriages with flowers during the Tournament of Roses Parade in order to celebrate the ripening of the orange crop. In the Netherlands, people eat donuts because they believe it will bring them good fortune.

Making New Year’s resolutions is another popular tradition found around the world. Decide what yours will be and send free eCards for New Year’s to share your best wishes for the year ahead! Happy New Year!
