Happy New Year!

  The beginning of the new year is another holiday celebrated by many cultures through space and time. A time for old problems to be acknowledged, old memories to be reminisced upon, and everything is new- a chance to start fresh.
  For Westerners today, January 1st marks the star of the new year. It wasn't always celebrated at that time by the Western World, though. During the SCA's period, you'd more likely find Europeans celebrating it at the end of March, based on things like the resurrection of Jesus or the cross-quarter days.

  When did your persona celebrate the New Year? What calendar did they use? Why hold celebrations when they did? How did they celebrate it?
