If you like one New Years Day, how about a few over the next 366 days?
With our western Gregorian calendar, we will be enjoying a leap year. That one extra February 29 when all of those leap year babies get to celebrate a traditional birthday and when the slight errors in our 365 day calendar can be caught up with.
The Chinese New Year 4709, will begin on January 23. This is the year of the water dragon, which sounds like a very good year. The last year of the water dragon was for those flower children born between January 27, 1952 and February 13, 1953.
At sunset on September 16, the Hebrew calendar celebrates Rosh Hashanah, or New Year's Day 5773.
The Hijri or Islamic calendar will celebrate New Year's Day 1434 beginning at sunset November 14.
The Mayan calendar will be THE topic this year. On December 21, the 5125 year great cycle will begin anew. I have embedded an YouTube clip that is pretty interesting about the Mayan circular calendar.
