The New Year’s Day
New year’s day wasn’t always celebrated on January 1. The Gregorian calendar reform restored the day as the new year’s day in 1582. Most Catholic countries adopted the new calendar almost immediately, but Protestant countries did it gradually. For example, it wasn’t adopted by the British until 1752 and before then the British Empire and their American colonies celebrated the new year in March.

The New Year’s Resolutions
Nevertheless, people have always been looking back to the past on the New Year’s Eve and – even more importantly – forward to the future. The coming year is a time to think of the changes we want to make in our lives to make them better.

Have you ever thought about what people want to improve in their lives most? See what the top ten New Year resolutions are and check if yours are on the list. On New Year’s Eve people resolve to:

Hey, Vidic15, I hope you’ll sign the contract with Manchester United, but you’d better learn more English so that you could understand what you’re signing… ;P
