According to which calendar is New Year’s celebrated on January 1st?
The Gregorian calendar is the calendar used in most of the world. It is named after Pope Gregory XIII, who introduced it in October 1582. The calendar was developed as a correction to the Julian calendar, shortening the average year by 0.0075 days. New Year’s Day is observed on January 1, on the modern Gregorian calendar as well as the Julian calendar. Traditionally the day has been observed as a religious feast, but in modern times the arrival of the New Year is often observed with fireworks at the stroke of midnight as the New Year begins.
