National Days of January
January is named for Janus – the god of beginnings and transitions. It is fitting that this name is used, since so many people have a restart of not only their calendar year, but also of their life with New Year’s resolutions. Julius Caesar gave the month 31 days but the month originally had only 29 days in the 8th century as part of the lunar calendar.
