New Year’s Eve has been a time of celebration, a day for ushering in the new year, for nearly four-thousand years.

In South Florida, as around the world, festivities include partying, handing out with friends, drinking champagne, making resolutions, and counting down as the ball drops in Time Square.

The earliest recorded festivities in honor of a new year’s arrival date back some 4,000 years to ancient Babylon. For the Babylonians, the first new moon following the vernal equinox—the day in late March with an equal amount of sunlight and darkness—heralded the start of a new

While many people in the United States only think of December 26 as the day after Christmas, to some, especially people in Great Britain, its known as “Boxing Day.”

Boxing Day started in the UK about 800 years ago, during the Middle Ages. It was the day when the alms box, collection boxes for the poor often kept in churches, were traditionally opened so that the contents could be distributed to poor people. Some churches still open these boxes on Boxing Day.

It might have been the Romans that first brought this type of collecting box to the UK, but they used them to collect money for the betting games which they played during their winter celebrations!

While the origin of the name “Boxing Day” isn’t entirely clear, usually one of the following
