Should the new year begin when Spring arrives? The season of new life. Instead of in December when everything is still dying. It's the cycle. Why in the hell does a new year begin when the winter is still blowing in.

Because it's closer to Jesus' birthday


Ignoring the fact that he was never born on December 25th.

I find Spring a little odd seeing as how it's sometimes colder and more lifeless than in Winter. Here is where I avoid going on a long 'discussion' about time and our perception >_>

has nothing to do with it

the whole western world was running on the julian calendar well before jesus' birthday was declared to be celebrated in tandem with the winter solstice

Regarding OP. The Roman calendar originally did start the new year with spring. But the Roman calendar wasn't entirely accurate, so it was adjusted into the Julian calendar, which received further refinement to the Gregorian calendar (a very minor shift)

I'm sure there's a Wikipedia article on it or something.

But when everywhere is cold and dull, in that time when you celebrate New Year the surroundings become more beautiful and brighter.

Have to start by defining Spring, in a way that the definition applies globally.

Good luck with that.

tbh yeah spring does make sense for the new year.

Quote by chrismendiola at #33574749
Why is Sunday part of the weekend and the beginning of each week? Makes you think.


it makes more sense starting with monday like most places. I always think of monday as the first day and confuse myself.

Is the calendar even originally based on seasons? Anyone below the Northern hemisphere's gonna find this confusing as hell.


^ Over here the weekend's Fri/Sat, it makes sense that Sunday's the first day of the week.

oh yeah I know they do it that way there. it's the same in the US (for different but similar reasons).

with the southern hemisphere thing it'd still be beginning with a season at least but yeah good point like it matters lol.

What about those places that just have a wet season and a dry season?

I live in one of those places and usually idk what day it is so it's not like this would affect me in any way.
