Millennia is the new year. The first record of a new year's celebrations occurred during Babylonian times. However, January 1st was not really the designated day. For example, the first new moon after the vernal equinox ushered in the new year at one time. These festivities took place in Martius (March), the first month in the early Roman calendar, which only had ten months, and only had ten months.

King Pompilius later added the months Januarius (named for Janus, the pagan god of gates, doors, and beginnings), and Februarius, bringing the calendar to 12 months. Julius Caesar created the Julian calendar, which most closely matches the Gregorian calendar, which the majority of the world follows today.

Romans made sacrifices to Janus, giving gifts, and general revelry in the first day of the year in the appropriately named month of January. The god Janus was able to look backward and forward to the future with his two faces.
