You may know New Year is not a new concept; we can observe this function in the ancient era. In Mesopotamia, around 2000 B.C, New Year celebration was started. They observed this event on mid-period of March. But now we celebrate the event in first January. Some other ancient tribes also celebrated the event in their own period.
There were 10 months on the calendar until 700 B.C. The king of Rome added two months to their calendar as January and February. After that, the journey of New Year celebration at first January began, though this celebration was not so familiar to everyone then. Around 46 B.C Julius Caesar improved the old Roman calendar based on the latest concept of the solar system. After that, the 1st January concept became more popular in Rome. Christian society of Europe considered the January 1st concept as non-Christian culture and canceled it as the first day of the Year. Around 567 A.D, Christian society celebrated the day on 25 December. After Georgian calendar proposed, the day on first January established once again. Now we follow this concept of New Year Celebration internationally.
