Happy New Year!
The New Year is a time to reflect on the changes we want or need to make. Here is a list of the top 10 New Year’s resolutions according to travel company TripSavvy:
- Spend more time with family or friends
- Fit in fitness
- Tame the bulge
- Quit smoking
- Enjoy life more
- Quit drinking
- Get out of debt
- Learn something new
- Help others
- Get organised
The tradition of making resolutions goes back 4,000 years to the ancient Babylonians who celebrated the end of the old year by making promises to their gods.
The Romans also made vows to the god Janus (hence January) asking for forgiveness in exchange for gifts! In 46BC when Julius Caesar changed the calendar, resolutions became more recognisable with people making promises such as showing kindness to others.
In medieval times knights affirmed their commitment to chivalry at the change of year.
