When did January 1 become the first day of the New Year?
March was the original beginning of the year in some previous calendars.
January 1 had become the first day of the New Year when Julius Caesar (100 B.C.E.-44 B.C.E.) reorganized the Roman calendar and made it solar rather than lunar in the year 45 B.C.E. and moved the beginning of the year to January 1.
We use the Gregorian calendar
When the Gregorian calendar was introduced in 1582, January 1 continued to be recognized as the first day of the year in most places.
However, in England and the American colonies, March 25, intended to represent the spring equinox, was the beginning of their year. Under this system, March 24, 1700, was followed by March 25, 1701.
In 1752, the British government changed the beginning date of the year to January 1.
Many interesting events happened on the first day, first month, here are a few:
The 1st month of the God of Israel called Nisan, נִיסָן and ha aviv הָאָבִיב
Here are some "new beginnings"
Gen.8  And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
Exod.40  On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation.
 And it came to pass in the first month in the second year, on the first day of the month, that the tabernacle was reared up.
 And he reared up the court round about the tabernacle and the altar, and set up the hanging of the court gate. So Moses finished the work.
 Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of Yehovah filled the tabernacle.
 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of Yehovah filled the tabernacle.
 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:
 But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up.
 For the cloud of Yehovah was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys.
Num.9  And Yehovah spake unto
Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the first month
of the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,
 Let the children of Israel also keep the passover at his appointed season.
 In the fourteenth day of this month, at even, ye shall keep it in his appointed season: according to all the rites of it, and according to all the ceremonies thereof, shall ye keep it.
Moses spake unto the
children of Israel, that they should keep the passover.
 And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that Yehovah commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel.
 And there were certain men, who were defiled by the dead body of a man, that they could not keep the passover on that day: and they came before Moses and before Aaron on that day:
 And those men said unto him, We are defiled by the dead body of a man: wherefore are we kept back, that we may not offer an offering of Yehovah in his appointed season among the children of Israel?
 And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what Yehovah will command concerning you.
 And Yehovah spake unto
 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the passover unto Yehovah.
 The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
 They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the ordinances of the passover they shall keep it.
 But the man that is clean, and is not in a journey, and forbeareth to keep the passover, even the same soul shall be cut off from among his people: because he brought not the offering of Yehovah in his appointed season, that man shall bear his sin.
 And if a stranger shall sojourn among you, and will keep the passover unto Yehovah; according to the ordinance of the passover, and according to the manner thereof, so shall he do: ye shall have one ordinance, both for the stranger, and for him that was born in the land.
 And on the day that the tabernacle was reared up the cloud covered the tabernacle, namely, the tent of the testimony: and at even there was upon the tabernacle as it were the appearance of fire, until the morning.
it was alway: the
cloud covered it by day, and the appearance of fire by night.
 And when the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, then after that the children of Israel journeyed: and in the place where the cloud abode, there the children of Israel pitched their tents.
 At the commandment of Yehovah the children of Israel journeyed, and at the commandment of Yehovah they pitched: as long as the cloud abode upon the tabernacle they rested in their tents.
when the cloud tarried long upon the tabernacle many days, then the children of
Israel kept the charge of Yehovah, and journeyed not.
 And so it was, when the cloud was a few days upon the tabernacle; according to the commandment of Yehovah they abode in their tents, and according to the commandment of Yehovah they journeyed.
 And so it was, when the cloud abode from even unto the morning, and that the cloud was taken up in the morning, then they journeyed: whether it was by day or by night that the cloud was taken up, they journeyed.
 Or whether it were two days, or a month, or a year, that the cloud tarried upon the tabernacle, remaining thereon, the children of Israel abode in their tents, and journeyed not: but when it was taken up, they journeyed.
 At the commandment of Yehovah they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of Yehovah they journeyed: they kept the charge of Yehovah, at the commandment of Yehovah by the hand of Moses.
Num.20  Then came the children of Israel, even the whole congregation, into the desert of Zin in the first month: and the people abode in Kadesh; and Miriam died there, and was buried there.
2 Chr. 29  Hezekiah began to reign when he was five and twenty
years old, and he reigned nine and twenty years in Jerusalem. And his mother's
name was Abijah, the
daughter of Zechariah.
 And he did that which was right in the sight of Yehovah, according to all that David his father had done.
 He in the first year of his reign, in the first month, opened the doors of the house of Yehovah, and repaired them.
he brought in the priests and the Levites, and gathered them together into the
 And said unto them, Hear me, ye Levites, sanctify now yourselves, and sanctify the house of Yehovah God of your fathers, and carry forth the filthiness out of the holy place.
 For our fathers have trespassed, and done that which was evil in the eyes of Yehovah our God, and have forsaken him, and have turned away their faces from the habitation of Yehovah, and turned their backs.
 Also they have shut up the doors of the porch, and put out the lamps, and have not burned incense nor offered burnt offerings in the holy place unto the God of Israel.
 Wherefore the wrath of Yehovah was upon Judah and Jerusalem, and he hath delivered them to trouble, to astonishment, and to hissing, as ye see with your eyes.
 For, lo, our fathers have fallen by the sword, and our sons and our daughters and our wives are in captivity for this.
 Now it is in mine heart to make a covenant with Yehovah God of Israel, that his fierce wrath may turn away from us.
 My sons, be not now negligent: for Yehovah hath chosen you to stand before him, to serve him, and that ye should minister unto him, and burn incense.
 Then the Levites arose, Mahath the son of Amasai, and Joel the son of Azariah, of the sons of the Kohathites: and of the sons of Merari, Kish the son of Abdi, and Azariah the son of Jehalelel: and of the Gershonites; Joah the son of Zimmah, and Eden the son of Joah:
 And of the sons of Elizaphan; Shimri, and Jeiel: and of the sons of Asaph; Zechariah, and Mattaniah:
 And of the sons of Heman; Jehiel, and Shimei: and of the sons of Jeduthun; Shemaiah, and Uzziel.
 And they gathered their brethren, and sanctified themselves, and came, according to the commandment of the king, by the words of Yehovah, to cleanse the house of Yehovah.
 And the priests went into the inner part of the house of Yehovah, to cleanse it, and brought out all the uncleanness that they found in the temple of Yehovah into the court of the house of Yehovah. And the Levites took it, to carry it out abroad into the brook Kidron.
 Now they began on the first day of the first month to sanctify, and on the eighth day of the month came they to the porch of Yehovah: so they sanctified the house of Yehovah in eight days; and in the sixteenth day of the first month they made an end.
 Then they went in to Hezekiah the king, and said, We have cleansed all the house of Yehovah, and the altar of burnt offering, with all the vessels thereof, and the shewbread table, with all the vessels thereof.
 Moreover all the vessels, which king Ahaz in his reign did cast away in his transgression, have we prepared and sanctified, and, behold, they are before the altar of Yehovah.
 Then Hezekiah the king rose early, and gathered the rulers of the city, and went up to the house of Yehovah.
 And they brought seven bullocks, and seven rams, and seven lambs, and seven he goats, for a sin offering for the kingdom, and for the sanctuary, and for Judah. And he commanded the priests the sons of Aaron to offer them on the altar of Yehovah.
 So they killed the bullocks, and the priests received the blood, and sprinkled it on the altar: likewise, when they had killed the rams, they sprinkled the blood upon the altar: they killed also the lambs, and they sprinkled the blood upon the altar.
 And they brought forth the he goats for the sin offering before the king and the congregation; and they laid their hands upon them:
 And the priests killed them, and they made reconciliation with their blood upon the altar, to make an atonement for all Israel: for the king commanded that the burnt offering and the sin offering should be made for all Israel.
 And he set the Levites in the house of Yehovah with cymbals, with psalteries, and with harps, according to the commandment of David, and of Gad the king's seer, and Nathan the prophet: for so was the commandment of Yehovah by his prophets.
 And the Levites stood with the instruments of David, and the priests with the trumpets.
 And Hezekiah commanded to offer the burnt offering upon the altar. And when the burnt offering began, the song of Yehovah began also with the trumpets, and with the instruments ordained by David king of Israel.
 And all the congregation worshipped, and the singers sang, and the trumpeters sounded: and all this continued until the burnt offering was finished.
 And when they had made an end of offering, the king and all that were present with him bowed themselves, and worshipped.
 Moreover Hezekiah the king and the princes commanded the Levites to sing praise unto Yehovah with the words of David, and of Asaph the seer. And they sang praises with gladness, and they bowed their heads and worshipped.
 Then Hezekiah answered and said, Now ye have consecrated yourselves unto Yehovah, come near and bring sacrifices and thank offerings into the house of Yehovah. And the congregation brought in sacrifices and thank offerings; and as many as were of a free heart burnt offerings.
 And the number of the burnt offerings, which the congregation brought, was threescore and ten bullocks, an hundred rams, and two hundred lambs: all these were for a burnt offering to Yehovah.
 And the consecrated things were six hundred oxen and three thousand sheep.
 But the priests were too few, so that they could not flay all the burnt offerings: wherefore their brethren the Levites did help them, till the work was ended, and until the other priests had sanctified themselves: for the Levites were more upright in heart to sanctify themselves than the priests.
 And also the burnt offerings were in abundance,with the fat of the peace offerings, and the drink offerings for every burnt offering. So the service of the house of Yehovah was set in order.
 And Hezekiah rejoiced, and all the people, that God had prepared the people: for the thing was done suddenly.
Ezra.7  Now after these
things, in the reign of Artaxerxes king of Persia, Ezra the son of Seraiah, the son of Azariah, the son of Hilkiah,
 The son of Shallum, the son of Zadok, the son of Ahitub,
 The son of Amariah, the son of Azariah, the son of Meraioth,
 The son of Zerahiah, the son of Uzzi, the son of Bukki,
 The son of Abishua, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the chief priest:
 This Ezra went up from Babylon; and he was a ready scribe in the law of Moses, which Yehovah Yehovah of Israel had given: and the king granted him all his request, according to the hand of Yehovah his Yehovah upon him.
 For upon the
first day of the first month began he to go up from Babylon, and on the
first day of the fifth month came he to Jerusalem, according to the good hand
of his God upon him.
 For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the law of Yehovah, and to do it, and to teach in Israel statutes and judgments.
One calendar, no fiscal calendar in scripture
Fiscal: of or pertaining to the public treasury or revenues: example - fiscal policies that may change. Also, of or pertaining to financial matters in general.
God laws (policies) are the same all year round, they don’t change
A few more scriptures:
Ezek.30  And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month, in the seventh day of the month, that the word of Yehovah came unto me, saying,
Ezek.45  Thus saith the Lord Yehovah; In the first month, in the first day of the month, thou shalt take a young bullock without blemish, and cleanse the sanctuary:
 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten.
Dan.10  And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel;
Joel.2  Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in Yehovah your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.
This is how we recognize when the year starts
Gen. 1 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים, יְהִי מְאֹרֹת בִּרְקִיעַ הַשָּׁמַיִם, לְהַבְדִּיל, בֵּין הַיּוֹם וּבֵין הַלָּיְלָה; וְהָיוּ לְאֹתֹת וּלְמוֹעֲדִים, וּלְיָמִים וְשָׁנִים
One New Year
Deut.11  A land which Yehovah thy God careth for: the eyes of Yehovah thy God are always upon it,
from the “beginning of the year” even unto the “end of the year”.
אֶרֶץ, אֲשֶׁר-יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ דֹּרֵשׁ אֹתָהּ: תָּמִיד, עֵינֵי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ בָּהּ--מֵרֵשִׁית הַשָּׁנָה, וְעַד אַחֲרִית שָׁנָה
Saul tells the Corinthians: Keep it simple!
2 Cor. 11 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Messiah.
Exod.23  Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.
שָׁלֹשׁ רְגָלִים, תָּחֹג לִי בַּשָּׁנָה
 Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month abib (ha aviv); for in it thou came out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty: (offering time)
 And the feast of harvest, the first fruits of thy labors, which thou hast sown in the field:
and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, בְּצֵאת הַשָּׁנָה when thou hast gathered in thy labors out of the field.
 Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord Yehovah. (Offering time)
Deut.16  Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before Yehovah thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before Yehovah empty.
 Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of Yehovah thy God which he hath given thee.
A good time to "come out and be separate"
By strength of hand Yehovah brought us out from Egypt,
From the house of bondage (sin)
 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand Yehovah brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten.
 And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which Yehovah did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt.
 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that Yehovah's law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath Yehovah brought thee out of Egypt.
 And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying,
What is this?
that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand Yehovah brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:
 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that Yehovah slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to Yehovah all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.
 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which Yehovah our Yehovah hath commanded you?
 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and Yehovah brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:
 And Yehovah shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:
 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.
 And Yehovah commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear Yehovah our Yehovah, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.
 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before Yehovah our Yehovah, as he hath commanded us.
Watch out for the mixed multitude
Exod. 12  And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.
Num. 11  And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?
Neh. 13  Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.
"Come out and be separate"
Exod. 33 For wherein shall it be known here that I and thy people have found grace in thy sight? is it not in that thou goest with us? so shall we be separated, I and thy people, from all the people that are upon the face of the earth.
Lev. 20  But I have said unto you, Ye shall inherit their land, and I will give it unto you to possess it, a land that floweth with milk and honey: I am Yehovah your Yehovah, which have separated you from other people.
Deut. 32  When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel
1 Kgs. 8  For they be thy people, and thine inheritance, which thou broughtest forth out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron:
 That thine eyes may be open unto the supplication of thy servant, and unto the supplication of thy people Israel, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto thee.
 For thou didst separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be thine inheritance, as thou spakest by the hand of Moses thy servant, when thou broughtest our fathers out of Egypt, O Yehovah.
Ezra 6  And the children of the captivity kept the passover upon the fourteenth day of the first month.
 For the priests and the Levites were purified together, all of them were pure, and killed the passover for all the children of the captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves.
 And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek Yehovah Yehovah of Israel, did eat,
 And kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with joy: for Yehovah had made them joyful, and turned the heart of the king of Assyria unto them, to strengthen their hands in the work of the house of Yehovah, the Yehovah of Israel.
Ezra 10  And that whosoever would not come within three days, according to the counsel of the princes and the elders, all his substance should be forfeited, and himself separated from the congregation of those that had been carried away.
 Then all the men of Judah and Benjamin gathered themselves together unto Jerusalem within three days. It was the ninth month, on the twentieth day of the month; and all the people sat in the street of the house of Yehovah, trembling because of this matter, and for the great rain.
 And Ezra the priest stood up, and said unto them, Ye have transgressed, and have taken strange wives, to increase the trespass of Israel.
 Now therefore make confession unto Yehovah, God of your fathers, and do his pleasure: and separate yourselves from the people of the land, and from the strange wives.
 Then all the congregation answered and said with a loud voice, As thou hast said, so must we do.
 But the people are many, and it is a time of much rain, and we are not able to stand without, neither is this a work of one day or two: for we are many that have transgressed in this thing.
 Let now our rulers of all the congregation stand, and let all them which have taken strange wives in our cities come at appointed times, and with them the elders of every city, and the judges thereof, until the fierce wrath of our Yehovah for this matter be turned from us.
Neh. 9  And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.
 And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the
law of Yehovah their Yehovah one fourth part of the day;
and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped Yehovah their Yehovah.
Neh. 10  And the rest of the people, the priests, the Levites, the porters, the singers, the Nethinims, and all they that had separated themselves from the people of the lands unto the law of Yehovah, their wives, their sons, and their daughters, every one having knowledge, and having understanding;
 They clave to their brethren, their nobles, and entered into a curse, and into an oath, to walk in Yehovah's law, which was given by Moses the servant of Yehovah, and to observe and do all the commandments of Yehovah our Lord, and his judgments and his statutes;
 And that we would not give our daughters unto the people of
the land, nor take their daughters for our sons:
Neh. 13  On that day they read in the book of Moses in the audience of the people; and therein was found written, that the Ammonite and the Moabite should not come into the congregation of Yehovah for ever;
 Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: howbeit our Yehovah turned the curse into a blessing.
 Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.
Rom. 1  Paul, a servant of Yeshua the Messiah, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of Yehovah,
In the end, Messiah will separate all
Matt. 25  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Rev. 18  And I heard another voice from heaven, saying,
Come out of her, my people,
that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Separate yourselves from this world, be "born from above, born of the water and spirit", born again.
John 3  Yeshua ... said ... Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of Yehovah.
 Yeshua answered, verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of Yehovah.
 That which is born of the flesh is flesh;
and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
 Marvel not that I said unto thee,
Ye must be born again!
"A new heart and a new spirit"
Ezek. 18  Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
Ezek. 36  A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
"A new creature, a new man"
Eph. 4  That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
 And that ye put
on the new man, which after Yehovah is created in righteousness
and true holiness.
Col. 3  Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;  And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
2 Cor. 5  Therefore if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature: old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.
1 Pet. 1  Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of Yehovah, which liveth and abideth for ever.
 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the
flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.
And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
Rev. 21  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
**Please: Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand Yehovah brought you out from this place.
Judaism has four, five or six new years, which is not scriptural.
What more can I say,
All that joined themselves to the God of Israel prepare for the Spring Feasts and Holy days.
Happy New Year, Happy new beginnings again!
