WHAT DOES NEW YEAR'S MEAN IN ENGLISH?

New Year's

New Year

New Year is the time at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar's year count is incremented. In many cultures, the event is celebrated in some manner. The New Year of the Gregorian calendar, today in worldwide use, falls on 1 January, as was the case with the Roman calendar. There are numerous calendars that remain in regional use that calculate the New Year differently. The order of months in the Roman calendar was January to December since the reign of King Numa Pompilius in about 700 BC, according to Plutarch and Macrobius. It was only relatively recently that 1 January again became the first day of the year in Western culture. Until 1751 in England and Wales the new year started on 25 March – Lady Day, one of the four quarter days. Since then, 1 January has been the first day of the year. During the Middle Ages several other days were variously taken as the beginning of the calendar year. In many countries, such as the Czech Republic, Italy, Spain and the UK, 1 January is a national holiday.
