Happy New Year 2009

Happy New year

Quote by~Bill Vaughan
An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.

January is named after the Roman god Janus, who was always shownas having two heads. He looked back to the last year and forward to the new one. The Roman New Year festival was called the Calends, and people decorated their homes and gave each other gifts. - New years day
