New Year Marque
New Year's Day is Sunday, 1 January, 2017


"New Year's festivals generally include rites and ceremonies expressive of mortification, purgation, invigoration, and jublilation over lifes's renewal. The earliest-known celebration was about 2000BC in Mesopotamia, with the new moon nearest the spring equinox. In early medieval times most of Christian Europe regarded March 25 as the beginning of the new year. William the Conqueror decreed that the year start on Jan 1." per the Encyclopaedia Britannica, ©1969
