Welcome to the new year. Welcome new laws. This is what the new government is hoping for you and me. They hope to usher in a new era of hope, change, and prosperity. It is my hope that you will follow this article and start making positive changes in your life.
Welcome to the new year. It is time to begin making resolutions for the new year. New Year’s Day is typically the last day or date before the year begins. Many different cultures around the world commemorate the occasion in some way. In the Gregorian calendar, New Year happens on January 1st.
For most of us, New Year’s is our first day off from school. We can look forward to our first full week without our mother worrying that we have done something terribly wrong. If it was her idea, then she may very well be disappointed when New Year’s goes by without her harping on about getting home that night or bickering with the rest of the household about not being ready. New Year’s Eve is traditionally the first day off since children begin attending school. Many parents give gifts to their children on this day, or they give a small dinner party as a celebration of the new year.
The fifth and final day in January is known as Candlemas. Some people celebrate this day with traditional feasts and gifts, while others choose to light up colorful candles and hang them from the trees. Candlemas is seen as a religious celebration, and many people observe it differently than their other holidays. Some people keep the tradition of candles around the house to remember that life is precious and should not be threatened in any way.
The fourth, seventh, and eighth of February are known as the Parades. They are parades that are held to celebrate one of many important events in Roman history, such as the raising of the flags at the Tiberius’ mansion. March is also a big month for Rome to celebrate its liberation from the rule of the tyrant Julius Caesar. March also marks the first anniversary of the Caesars’ rule over the Roman world and the beginning of the first Roman spring after the snowfall of the first year.
The ninth of March is the first day of the new year, which falls on the Winter Festival. This is the only major public holiday in the Roman calendar during winter, other than the first day of Passover. The festivities mark the return of bread to the table, which has been symbolized with the small figure of an egg in a paper basket. April is another historical time to celebrate new beginnings. Many Christians view the beginning of the year as the exact moment when Christ was born, as it coincides with Good Friday.
The twentieth of March, the fiftieth anniversary of the deposition of the last Roman Emperor, has been proclaimed as the Centurial Year. It is also the Roman Spring Holiday. The celebration includes various parades throughout the city, as well as various feasts, games, and other traditional celebrations. May is also a crucial month for Rome to get ready for the elections of consuls for the pontificate. These are usually commemorated with enormous parades and ceremonies, culminating with the presentation of a golden crown to Caesar.
The last Roman new year that we will discuss, happens on January first of April. This is a major celebration of springtime throughout the Roman world and includes huge parades, special feasts, and other popular activities. The summer solstice is not celebrated until July, making it the longest celebrated Roman festival.
