What Is So Special About January 1st? by k2039(m): 4:45pm On Dec 31, 2012
At about 12.00 am later tonight most people will rejoice and congratulate each other, in fact some will create a big feast for the day.

Logically, january 1st is only the first day of a calendar year.
I don't see any spectacular difference between the first day and any other day of a calendar year, except that the former is the first and also a public holiday. Besides it's not the only public holiday in the year.

After the first day of the year, everything remains as it was(politically, environmentally etc), so I don't see the big deal.
I know some will talk about resolutions, but is it reasonable to wait till the end of the year to make a resolution.

IMHO I think new year is overrated, I will love to hear from nairalanders, what's so special about the first day of a year or what's so special about the new year.

Midnight 1st of January is the most annoying time of the year. Seriously how is it different from all the other days? And yet some over religious people will start running to church so they they as in church at that momment and then got back to what they are doing. I will rather sleep in my house or watch TV

[color=soyouquotedme]So you have to wait till the end of the year to thank God.

I don't see the logic. Every single day has contributed to the said year, so why not thank God daily.

I was just chatting about this topic a few minutes ago.
My opinion, nothing special!
It's just a change in the calender that people liken to the beginning of a new world. undecided
And down her in my dear country, it becomes an opportunity to dish out another round of drama

Just another day. Nothing at all special about it.

Thank the ancient Romans for putting the date in spotlight in their celebrating it for their god Janus.

Well, to me January 1st presents a new beginning. A chance to look back and say 'oh, I messed last year and I am going to improve this year'. It presents a renewed strength and vigour to pursue that dream of mine. I look forward to 2013. Have a properous year Fellow Nairalanders. wink

It's special because it means you saw the year through. You weren't a casualty figure that year
Re: What Is So Special About January 1st? by REMMEI(m): 8:41pm On Dec 31, 2012
@OP. . Maybe you should ask yourself this...what's so special about your birthday which i know deep inside of you,you do rejoice when the day comes..what's so special about each month and the days in it?..maybe you will ask again,what's so special about living life?.. In my humble opinion,there's something special about everything,you just have to figure it out yourself..

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE..

Nothing spectacular in particular in the cellular of Jan. 1st. It's just an opportunity to thank the Lord for giving the grace to see another year.
