Editor’s note: Interesting that the part quoted by Cameron of Abbott’s post only mentions New Years Day being Biblical.
The Book of Leviticus is clear that the first day of the new year is to be a day of rest and a day of sounding the trumpet. As a High Holy Day it would have been a time of resting in the Lord and remembering what He had done for them. Sadly most of our New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day celebrations have little to do with resting or remembering Jesus. From New Year’s Eve “bashes” of food and drink to New Year’s Day unending football parties, with more food and drink, contemporary New Year’s celebrations center more around friends, fun, food and partying than they do on thinking about Jesus and resting.
