Happy New Year. Why Jan 1 is the start of New Years  Joyful226
Have you ever wondered why the first day of the new year is January first? This is what I found out. January 1 date was known as Circumcision Style, because this was the date of the Feast of the Circumcision, Honoring Jesus' dedication in the Temple.. it is considered to be the eighth day of Christ's life when by Jewish law baby boys would be taken to the temple to be circumcised and officially given their names. And the mother’s could be made purer again after giving birth. Therefore, counting from December 25 as December 25 as day one.. when his birth is celebrated, January 1 is eight days later... because of this landing on the first day of January .. January 1 was determined to be the beginning of the New Year by Pope Gregory VIII as he designed the Liturgical Calendar, the new calendar was instituted when Gregory decreed, by the papal bull Inter gravissimas of 24 February 1582, that the day after Thursday, 4 October 1582 would be not Friday, 5 October, but Friday, 15 October 1582. The new calendar duly replaced the Julian calendar, in use since 45 BC, and has since come into universal use. Because of Gregory's involvement, the reformed Julian calendar came to be known as the Gregorian calendar also known as the Christian Calendar. Therefore New Years Day, was not only to start a new year but also originally To observe the day of Jesus Circumcision when he was taken to the temple, where Simeon did the religious ceremony God had promised Simeon, he would live to see the promised Messiah and indeed he did. Now you know why New Years is January 1st. I is another religious holiday that has gotten lost. Although still observed in the Anglican and Lutheran Churches. Luke 2:21-39New King James Version (NKJV) Circumcision of Jesus 21And when eight days were completed for the circumcision of the Child, His name was called Jesus, the name given by the angel before He was conceived in the womb. Jesus Presented in the Temple 22Now when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were completed, they brought Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord 23(as it is written in the law of the Lord, *Every male who opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord*),[a] 24and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the law of the Lord, *A pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.*[b] Simeon Sees God*s Salvation 25And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord*s Christ. 27So he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law, 28he took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said: 29*Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace, According to Your word; 30For my eyes have seen Your salvation 31Which You have prepared before the face of all peoples, 32A light to bring revelation to the Gentiles, And the glory of Your people Israel.* 33And Joseph and His mother marveled at those things which were spoken of Him. 34Then Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His mother, *Behold, this Child is destined for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign which will be spoken against 35(yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.* Anna Bears Witness to the Redeemer 36Now there was one, Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was of a great age, and had lived with a husband seven years from her virginity; 37and this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. 38And coming in that instant she gave thanks to the Lord, and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem. The Family Returns to Nazareth 39So when they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned to Galilee, to their own city, Nazareth. Footnotes: a.*Luke 2:23 Exodus 13:2, 12, 15 b.*Luke 2:24 Leviticus 12:8 Wishing you all a wonderful. Meaningful and Very Happy New Year filled with Joy Health and prosperity. And as Paul Harvey use to say, “Now you know the rest of the story”.
