Did you know that the year use to start on March the 1st??? That was on the Roman republican calendar.

From 153 BC on the official date has been the 1st of January. When the Julian calendar took over this continued.

It was first recognised in 1582 with the introduction of the Gregorian calender in France, Italy, Portugal and Spain. It was not adopted in Britain until 1752. Russia was the last to recognise this date in 1918.

The earliest known celebration of this date is in 2000 BC

A lot of important things have happened on this date in history here are some:-

1788 – “The Times” London’s oldest running newspaper was first published.

1863 – President Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation declaring that slaves in rebellious states were free.

1872 – The Holtermann nugget was mined in Australia, it was the largest nugget ever found weighting in at 630lbs.

1901 – The Commonwealth of Australia was proclaimed when the 6 colonies of Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Northern Territory were united.

1942 – 26 nations signed the United Nations Declaration

1945 – France was admitted to the United Nations

1958 – The treaties establishing the European Economic Community came into effect

1998 – A new anti-smoking law went into effect in California prohibiting people from smoking in bars

2000 – The calender switched over to the year 2000 with none of the computer glitches (Y2K) that some had predicted.

2002 – The Euro replaced the Deutsche Mark, the French franc, the Italian lira, the Spanish peseta, the Greek drachma, the Austrian schilling, the Belgian franc, the Finnish markka, the Irish pound, the Luxembourg franc, the Dutch guilder, and the Portuguese escudo as the official currency of these countries
