Free Note Cards for New Year to Express Your Appreciation
You might be a little surprised to read that the date of January 1st, as the first day of the new year, is relatively young. It is thought that the earliest recorded new year's celebration is thought to be around 2000 B.C. in Mesopotamia, but was held in mid March, around the time of the vernal equinox. Since those times, a number of other dates associated with the seasons were used by different cultures. Our thank you New Year party cards include some of the early ideas.
The early Roman calendar, which had only 10 months, showed March 1st as the first day of the new year. The first time January 1st was celebrated was around 153 B.C. in Rome. It is believed that the new year was moved from March to January because it marked the beginning of the civil year, and the month when the two newly elected Roman consuls began their terms. At the time, they were the highest ranking officials in the Roman republic. However, even within the country itself, this date was not always observed with some continuing to celebrate March 1st.
