Americas Best New Year’s Parades

Did you know that New Years day has been celebrated for thousands of years? The oldest known celebration dates back 4,000 years to ancient Babylon. The New Years that we celebrate today is a bit more recent. It began in 43 B.C. in Rome, when Julius Caesar updated an ancient calendar that had fallen out of sync with the sun. He added the months of July and August, and instituted January 1st as the beginning of the year. It seemed fitting since January is named after the Janus, the Roman god of new beginnings. We have transgressed past New Years being a celebration of a religious deity, but we still hold true to the celebration of new beginnings. The whole country becomes brighter, happier, and unified for a night. And one way we capture that feeling is through parades! There are many New Years parades out there, but just two that stand well above the rest.
