Trivia : New Year
 
 
PREFACE

Another year is going to say goodbye to us forever. As we get ready to embrace the New Year with lots of hope, seldom we pay attention to, �Oh! How the years go by!� The thought is supposed to be a preserve of retired pensioners, who have nothing but their past to ponder over. In an age of emphasis on youth, everybody just wants to attend rave parties to usher in another new dawn. Just try to think, how all this system of counting hours, days, weeks, months, years and ages began? One would say nobody has time to think of trivial things. But trivia can be more often than not very interesting. Human mind�s innate curiosity makes him to thin and ponder over these trivia. We, at hotgurgaon, have tried to compile some interesting known and unknown trivia about New Year celebrations in different civilizations, about facts and fictions behind origin of month�s names, that of day�s names. This is our endeavour to salute the undying zeal by which human civilization has survived and grown through ages. Following are the Famous New Year trivia.
