Old New Year's Day, In the News, and Enjoy

Old New Year's Day - Today is Old New Year's Day!

Although the Gregorian calendar was created in 1582, many countries chose to ignore it for several hundred years.

Instead, they used "Annunciation Style dating," which recognized the Feast of the Annunciation (March 25) as New Year’s Day.

England did not adopt our modern-day Gregorian calendar until 1751. Russia waited until 1918.

People in Russia, Switzerland, Macedonia, Georgia, Belarus, and Serbia still celebrate the Old New Year.

Plan a grand feast with family and friends to celebrate the occasion. Happy Old New Year!
