Article 2 (Dec 2019): Happy New Year - 2020
December 30, 2019Let the bells ring, and the cannon fire! Happy New Year to all.
January 1 is the first day of the Gregorian calendar year. It's a public holiday in the U.S. and many other countries. Traditionally, it is a day when people analyze their lives and decide what changes or improvements they want to make in the coming year.
This day has been observed as New Year's Day in most English-speaking countries since the British Calendar Act of 1751. Before that time, the New Year began on March 25, the approximate date of the vernal equinox. On January 1, the Earth begins another orbit of the sun, during which it will travel about 583,416,000 miles in 365.2422 days.
In some countries, New Year's Day is called "Everyman's Birthday," and everyone becomes one year older on this day rather than on the anniversary of their birth. In the U.S., many people encourage fate to bring them good luck in the coming year by eating "lucky" foods. Some like corned beef and cabbage. Many think black-eyed peas or red beans and rice will do the trick.
Whatever you believe, here's hoping you have a New Year filled with love, health and prosperity!
