1st of January is not more important than the other days of the year, however, it is special. It is special because it has been generally accepted as a reference point in yearly cycle.
Now you may want to ask, what's the big deal about being a reference? Just imagine yourself without a home or a journey without a place of departure or a destination. I hope you catch my drift.
1st of January is worth being really excited and great full to God about

Why do accountants choose the last day of the month to do stock take? Why do companies choose a day to do their year end? As humans, we should also set aside a day to take stock of our lifes, reflect on the past and plan for the future. It doesn't have to be jan first, u can choose to do urs daily, monthly or quarterly. Most pple just prefare to do theirs yearly, cos then u can include both short and long term goals. and since jan 1st is the first day of the new calender year, why not?

you celebrate only in the way of the lord. Because another year means that you are getting closer to a particular point in your life that God have appointed to make come to pass what he has prepared for you.

Remember the bible makes reference to in the appointed year of the lord.

You may know that year may the appointed year of the Lord. So celebrate it, unless you are celebrating a tin dat is not worth it.

Whats so special about your birthday? Since its just like every other day why do you have to celebrate it?
Re: What Is So Special About January 1st? by surveyProf(m): 9:44pm On Dec 31, 2012
Reasons while Jan 1st is special to lots of people is very simple, in the sense that, @ dis time last year, if you can cast ur mind back-to-back, you will discover dat der are some people that started dis year 2012 with you, but @ as today 31st December 2012 dey are no more, that means dey are not going to be crossing over with u, with dis alone, u are meant to take dis day as a special day and give thanks to you maker, been u a Christain, Muslim, etc, its very necessary @ dis time!

Why do you need to remember your birthday then since its just like every other day? As a poster said, its a reference point, the begining and start of a new era. Imagine going for a journey without a starting point or refrence point?

mascot87: @Poster : Ask ur self What's so special about expecting new things in ur life?

If I want a new thing in my life I don't have to wait till the end of the year.
A new year doesn't translate to a new thing, a calendar ended and another started that's all I see.

Mynd_44: 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

Wel,jan 1st is lyk evry oda day 2me. I rejoice greatly wen i c a new minute,hour and day. In dat lite,d idea of waiting until 1 particular day,2thank God,be it my birthday or jan 1st is xo nt on point. Moreover,jan 1st is rooted in a pagan celebration of d god janus wit 2 faces,one facing bk nd d oda front. Pals tk 2mao jst lyk evry oda day.

lavita2: 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
All your assertion are pointless if you don't work towards having a new beginning. You don't have to wait till Jan. 1st to have a new beginning.

Are you saying if you mess up in january you have to wait till the end of the year to have a new beginning.

About vigour and renewed strenght, the new year won't give you that, it's your personal motivation that gives you that and you don't have to wait till the end of the year to be motivated.

Uyi Iredia: It's special because it means you saw the year through. You weren't a casualty figure that year

That one sees one year through doesn't mean he will see the next till the end.

Evident by the fact that some people will die on the first day of the new year, so what happens to the celebration they had at 12.00am
Re: What Is So Special About January 1st? by Truckpusher(m): 10:04pm On Dec 31, 2012
The only thing special abt 1st January is that lots of folks becomes broke in a week's time....and when you see those long faces after two days from now then it bites even harder.
Re: What Is So Special About January 1st? by k2039(m): 10:10pm On Dec 31, 2012
REMMEI: @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..
I celebrated my birthday yesterday and it was just a normal day for me, no cake or party because it's just a waste of resources.

If at all there is a day that matters in the calendar it's my birthday. The only reason it's special is because when I die it will be said about 'K2039 Dec 30, 1990-.........' did so and so in his X years on earth.

So birthday actually calls for a sober reflection not celebration.

If I were to go by your post each day and month aren't different from each other, so why is new year over rated than other days.
If it's not over rated then every day should be celebrated like the new year.

ubong560: 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.
We thank God daily, we thank God for the breath of life we get for each day so Jan. 1st is over rated then

maninmood:


You sound like life is quite meaningless to you, pardon my ignorance if I am wrong. January 1st is not only crucial to individuals but also companies. It is high time you checked what you were unable to fix in 2012, reflect over it, and make a stern decision, and this should start tomorrow.
You don't have to wait till the end of the year to make a stern decision.
All I see from your post is that the new year calls for a reflection and soberness over the last year, not a celebration, so it's over rated.

By the way life is meaningless, you can ask Solomon. What's the point of living if you are going to die.
