2. New Year's Day is on January 1,  the first day of the year on the modern Gregorian calendar.


3. The Romans dedicated this day to Janus, the god of gates, doors, and beginnings. The month originally owes its name to the deity Janus, who had two faces, one looking forward and the other looking backward. This suggests that New Year's celebrations are founded on pagan traditions.
