New Year’s Day
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 1 of January, repeating indefinitely
A federal holiday in the United States, New Year’s Day has its origin in Roman times when sacrifices were offered to Janus, the two-faced Roman deity who looked back on the past and forward to the future. It is usually celebrated with parties the night before. On January 1, some people institute lifestyle changes known as “New Year’s Resolutions.”
