    Considering we're on the eve of a new year, I thought this may be of interest to some:- a short history of our calendar that we have today and how we've come to view 1st January as the start of a new year.

    What party? Can't remember the last time I went to any party on New Years' Eve. Probably nearly thirty years ago! Just spend it at home and watch a good film!
