New Year Celebrations
History Behind New Year
New year was first observed in ancient Babylon about
4000 years back. In 2000 BC, the Babylonian New Year began with the first New
Moon after the Vernal Equinox or the first day of spring. The beginning of
spring is the best time for starting a new year as in this season new crops
are planted. January 1, on the other hand, has no astronomical nor
agricultural significance. It is purely arbitrary.
