HAPPY NEW YEAR 2021 - TRENDING WORLDWIDE
Many partying to celebrate the New Year despite the Covid-19 pandemic may not be aware how did this celebration begin.
Was it due to the Gregorian, Julian or Roman calendar?
Today's youth, globally, are not pertinently curious or concerned about how the New Year celebrations originated.
It's a surprise that this celebration first began about 4000 years ago in ancient Babylon, in Mesopotamia.
Babylon's ruins are located in present day Iraq.
It was the Roman dictator Julius Caesar and the astronomer named Sosigenes he hired to sort out the calendar that gave birth to January 1 being celebrated as the New Year.
According to History, Sosigenes advised Caesar to "do away with the lunar cycle entirely and follow the solar year."
The solar year was followed and adopted by the Egyptians during that period.
So, with Sosigenes's guidance the year was calculated to be 365 and 1/4 days.
History says: "Caesar added 67 days to 46 B.C., making 45 B.C. begin on January 1, rather than in March."
As per Hindu belief, they follow the Lunar calendar and consider the month of Chaitra (March to April) as the first month of the year.
Irrespective of the history behind it, New Year, moreso owing to its commercial success is celebrated worldwide.
