It began thousands of years ago in ancient Babylon, celebrated as an 11-day festival on the first day of spring. During this time, many cultures use the solar and lunar cycles to determine the first day the year. It was not until Julius Caesar began to use the Julius calendar that January 1 became a holiday. The content of the festivals has also changed. While early festivals were largely pagan, celebrating cycles of the Earth, Christian tradition celebrated the Feast of the Circumcision of Christ on New Year Day. Roman Catholics also frequently celebrate the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, a feast honouring Mary. With time, the holiday season was growing into a celebration that was secular and religious. It has become a holiday associated with nationalism, socialism, and pride rather than a religious festival, although many people still follow old traditions.
