Ringing in a new year means new beginnings and endings. But the world didn't always see January that way. Even when January replaced March as the first month of the year after Roman king Numa Pompilius revised the calendar around 700 B.C., many religions held to celebrating the new year either on March 25th or December 25th according to their church calendars. Even the Julian calendar didn't motivate a clear beginning and end to the year. It wasn't until the Gregorian calendar, developed by Pope Gregory who introduced it in 1582, that most of the world began to see January 1 as the beginning of the New Year.
