Wish You all a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2016
ഒരു വർഷത്തിന്റെ അവസാനവും മറ്റൊരു വർഷത്തിന്റെ തുടക്കവുമായി വരുന്ന ദിവസങ്ങളിൽ ചില സംസ്കാരവുമായി ബന്ധപ്പെട്ടുകിടക്കുന്ന ആഘോഷമാണ് പുതുവത്സരം. പല രാജ്യങ്ങളിലുമായുള്ള വ്യത്യസ്ത കലണ്ടർ സമയങ്ങളിലാണ് പുതുവത്സരം ആഘോഷിക്കുന്നത്. ഒരു പുതുവത്സരത്തിൽ നിന്ന് അടുത്ത പുതുവത്സരത്തിലേക്ക് മുന്നൂറ്റി അറുപത്തി അഞ്ചേ കാൽ (365 ¼) ദിവസം വരും.
New Year is the time at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar's year count increments by one. Many cultures celebrate the event in some manner. The New Year of the Gregorian calendar, today mostly in use, falls on 1 January (New Year's Day), as was the case both in the old Roman calendar (at least after about 713 BCE) and in the Julian calendar that succeeded it.
The order of months was January to December in the Old Roman calendar during the reign of King Numa Pompilius in about 700 BCE, according to Plutarch and Macrobius, and has been in continuous use since that time. Many countries, such as the Czech Republic, Italy, Spain, the UK, and the United States, mark 1 January as a national holiday.
"The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals". Melody Beattie
During the Middle Ages in western Europe, while the Julian calendar was still in use, authorities moved New Year's Day variously, depending upon locale, to one of several other days, among them: 1 March, 25 March, Easter, 1 September, and 25 December.
These New Year's Day changes generally reverted to using January 1 before or during the various local adoptions of the Gregorian calendar, beginning in 1582. The change from March 25 Lady Day, one of the four quarter days – to January 1 took place in Scotland in 1600, before the ascension of James VI of Scotland to the throne of England in 1603 and well before the formation of the Kingdom of Great Britain in 1707.
In England and Wales (and in all British dominions, including Britain's American colonies), 1751 began on March 25 and lasted 282 days, and 1752 began on January 1. For more information about the changeover from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar and the effect on the dating of historical events etc., see Old Style and New Style dates.
"New Year's Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change." Sarah Ban Breathnach
A great many other calendars have seen use historically in different parts of the world; some such calendars count years numerically, while others do not. The expansion of Western culture during recent centuries has seen such widespread official adoption of the Gregorian calendar that its recognition and that of January 1 as the New Year has become virtually global. (Note for example the New Year celebrations held in Dubai to mark the start of 2014, which broke the world record for the most fireworks set off in a single display, lasting for six minutes and including the use of over 500,000 fireworks.)
Nevertheless, regional or local use of other calendars persists, along with the cultural and religious practices that accompany them. Many places (such as Israel, China, and India) also celebrate New Year at the times determined by these other calendars.

In the Gregorian calendar, New Year's Eve, Old Year's Day or Saint Sylvester's, the last day of the year, is on December 31. In many countries, New Year's Eve is celebrated at evening social gatherings, where many people dance, eat, drink alcoholic beverages, and watch or light fireworks to mark the new year. Some people attend a watch night service. The celebrations generally go on past midnight into January 1 (New Year's Day). Samoa and parts of Kiribati are the first places to welcome the New Year while Baker Island, in the United States, is among the last.

This is one of the most common resolutions, just be sure to be a bit more specific on where you want to go because vague ideas rarely get done, but attainable goals are something you can work with.Travel More
