Of course I would wonder about New Year's Day. Did you think that I wouldn't? Do you know that it has actually been celebrated for over 4000 years? It all got started in Mesopotamia, which is now Iraq. Then in 46 BC, Julius Caesar reformed the calendar. Shortly after that he was killed by Brutus. The Roman Senate then voted to honor his life on the first of January. So, I guess we owe the Roman Senate for New Year's Day.
OK, No, I ain't done yet. The month of January was named after the deity Janus. Janus had two faces, one looking back and one looking forward. So, this month is a good time to look back over our lives and also a good month to look forward and plan for the future. I have a lot of years to look back over so it may take me the rest of the day or week or month. . . So, look back, but not for too long, and then look forward to the future that 2014 will hold for you and me and have a great New Year's Day, you hear?
