Happy New Year 2023 History and Celebration

Happy New Year! It’s time to recap the last 365 days of celebrations that have come and gone. This year has been a whirlwind, but let’s take a moment to remember all of the fun we’ve had. The first big holiday this year was New Years Day, which falls on January 1st every year.

That day is traditionally celebrated by wearing something red or green, having some champagne or wine with family and friends, ringing in the new year at midnight with fireworks displays around the world, attending parties hosted by your favorite celebrities, and making resolutions for how you want to make 2019 better than 2018. 

The biggest party tradition is usually starting by watching something like Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve before heading out to a bar or club. For the first time in years, New Years Day brought heavy snow to some parts of the US and many other countries around the world saw record low temperatures so some weather-related festivities were going on across various states. 

Happy New Year! It’s been an eventful year with celebrations from all over the world. We’ve had record high temperatures and snowfall in the United States, as well as other countries around the world so some weather-related festivities were going on across various states.

History Of New Years Day

In the United States and many other countries around the world, January 1 heralds a new year replete with New Year’s resolutions for an exciting future. The day starts as hangover concoctions to help those who may have been drinking before midnight or early morning parties where DJs played music well into sunrise hours. Others will be grateful after waking up just in time through their prayers that they were able to survive past yesterday—no matter what was going on outside! But how did this holiday begin? It’s quite an old story- one dating back thousands of years ago

The history behind “New Year” begins long ago when people first lived without electricity yet relied heavily upon natural resources such as water from lakes like Sambet Creek (now part of the Nile River). The ancient Egyptians would use their calendar to measure time in 365 days, with each new year starting on September 19th. This day was the first day of their calendar and they would call it “The Opening of The Year.” 

The Babylonians and Egyptians were two very different cultures, but they both had a certain way of ritualizing the vernal equinox. For example, in Babylonia, it was celebrated with Akitu which spans 11 days as well- marking this occasion by performing rituals such as sacrificing animals or drinking sacred drinks like beer (which would make them drunk). The Egyptians also observed their new year during what we now call February on Sirius’ night because there are several stories about how pharaohs used to be told bouts of dreams from military officers before going into battle so that they could win!

The history of our calendars is a complicated story; it starts with Romulus and Remus, who were suckled by wolves to found the city of Rome. The early Roman calendar was devised in this legend as well—it’s said that these two brothers came up with an omen for good luck: if you can make your escape from enemies by midnight after they have eaten heartily at every meal then there will be peace ahead (or something like that).

The Julian calendar was developed by the Roman Emperor, Julius Caesar. He designated January 1st as a new beginning to mark his reign over all humanity and named it Adoptis Dies Natalibus which translates from Latin as ‘new day of birth’.

NEW YEAR’S DAY TRADITIONS

Adding pork to the New Year’s Day menu

Tired of traditions? Here’s a little-known fact: many countries have New Year’s rituals that include pigs. These animals are supposed to symbolize progress and abundance, which means you can take your pick from bacon (a la Canada) or roast pork for dinner on January 1st!

Thank the Babylonians for New Year’s Day resolutions

The Mesopotamians and Babylonians were among the first cultures to mark New Year’s Day as a starting point for their new Year. They also came up with resolutions, which is something we still do today!

Eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day

The tradition of cooking and eating black-eyed peas goes back over 1,500 years as a Jewish New Year’s Day tradition. Some say that the dish was first introduced into Georgia from Spain around 1730 with Sephardic Jews but we know its Georgian roots because it is said they cooked this sacred food at Passover time – before even America had been created!

Celebration Ideas & Activities

1. One word: brunch

Soak up the champagne with a nice stack of pancakes and don’t forget about that strong coffee. Or go wild for crab cake benedicts!

2. Share resolutions, intentions, or goals with loved ones

The people who love you and care about what happens to your life can be an incredible support system. They’ll help make any decision easier, even if it’s something as small-sounding as deciding on a new hairstyle!

3. Clean out your closet

Take the time to clear out your closet. Spend some money on new clothes that are fun, carefree, and flattering for you- this means layering up with statement jewelry too! Invite friends over so everyone can get fresh air in a beautiful space decorated by them (or just take one last walk through before winter sets).

5 NOVEL FACTS ABOUT NEW YEAR’S

1.726 miles traveled

A lot of people like to ring in the new year by taking a long drive, but not many know that it’s more than just tradition.

You may think you’re having fun with your friends while cruising down I-5 on December 31st at 3 am…but let me tell ya – there are plenty who will argue otherwise! The average American drives almost 1000 miles during this period; making them one very busy family member indeed (pun intended)!

2. Hangover food saves many on New Year’s Day

Eating out on New Year’s Day is a popular tradition for many people, but instead of cooking the big meal, they may opt to eat at restaurants and order hangover food.

3. New year, new babies!

January 1st is a special birthday that celebrates all of the babies born in January. There are 8,000 new additions to this list every single year!

4. Champagne showers

It’s a new year and that means one thing: champagne. But with 360 million glasses of sparkling wine being consumed on New Year’s Eve, you might be wondering where all those bubbles come from? The answer is simple- they pop!

5. Fourth favorite holiday in America

The happiest people in America are those who celebrate New Year’s Eve. This is the most popular of all holidays, with 41% saying it’s their favorite and an additional 15 percent selecting Thanksgiving or July 4th as well!

WHY WE LOVE NEW YEAR’S DAY

1. It feels like a blank page

The sun is shining, the forecast calls for rainbows today! The stress of the holiday season has finally come to an end and you’re ready to take on a whole new year. You can’t wait until all those plans are made so that they’ll be perfect every time–every moment counts with these trips waiting in line at airports or bus stations around town…just know there will always be more adventures coming up before long because life never stands still even during its moments when we seem most settled down.

2. Your healthy habits don’t seem so weird

Wine is a social beverage that can be enjoyed by many people. However, some like it every day and some even go on diets where wine isn’t allowed because they feel drunk after one glass!

The idea behind this passage originally started with how society has become more health-conscious than ever before; but now everyone wants their life to mimic what other successful individuals do in theirs– whether these lifestyle choices include being vegetarian/low carb or going to the gym regularly.

3. The sense of accomplishment when you look back over the last year

You are one of the best at getting things done, so there’s no need to apologize for being late. You made some major accomplishments last year and it is only natural that your body needed time off!
