Interesting Facts About New Years
New Year’s is approaching. It’s a time when millions of people celebrate with food, new resolutions, and good cheers. But how much do you truly know about the holiday? Let’s look at a few interesting facts about New Year’s.
The First New Year’s
The first New Year’s celebration goes back almost 4,000 years. It was Julius Caesar, the emperor of Rome, who first declared 1 January a national holiday. He named the month after Janus, who was a Roman god of doors and gates. Janus also had two faces, one in the front and one in the back.
New Year Resolutions
Around 45% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. Usually, the top resolutions in the world are:
- To quit smoking
- Get organised
- To spend less and save more
- To stay fit and healthy
According to sources, roughly 91% of people give up on their resolutions by the second week of January.
Leafy Greens And New Year
Tradition dictates that the more leafy greens a person eats on New Year, the more prosperity he or she will experience. Many believe this to be an incentive for staying healthy. Some people also believe that legumes bring prosperity as beans and peas look like coins. This is one of the reasons why many people eat black-eyed peas on 1 January.
A Bottle Of Champagne
Americans drink close to 360 million glasses of sparkling wine during New Year celebrations. This bubble stuff dates back to the 17th century when the cork was invented.
New York City’s Time Square
Every year around 1 million gather in New York City’s Times Square to watch the ball drop. This celebration came about because of a ban on fireworks. The first ball drop was organised in 1907 and was 700 pounds. It was lit with 100 25-watt light bulbs. The current ball really puts the old ball to shame. Today, the ball is covered in 2,688 crystals, is lit by 32,000 LED lights, weighs 11,875 pounds, and is 12 feet in diameter.
The New Year Parade
The Mummers Parade in Philadelphia has over 10,000 participants who step through City Hall and perform in unique costumes. The parade dates back to the mid-17th-century and incorporates a lot of elements from English, Irish, German, Swedish, and other European heritages.
The parade consists of five divisions, including comic division, wench brigades, fancy division, string bands, and fancy bridges. This event is a must for anybody who is in the area.
New Years And Crime
According to statistics from the National Insurance Crime Bureau, more vehicles are stolen on New Year than any other holiday. In 2011, the 1994 Honda Accord was the most stolen car on the holiday.
