Apart from the festive environment around, it was hard for me to understand why the first day of the year was so significant. Why was the first day of the year celebrated?
If I asked the elders, I rarely got a satisfactory answer.
The only answer which I probably got was from my mother and it was that if you have a great first day you will have a good year too.
This led me to develop a superstition that your rest of the year is most likely to be like the first day of the year.
So we tried hard to make it perfect.
Do not lie.
Study for the designated hours.
Eat good food (sometimes we went for a picnic).
Wear new clothes (this we did on the Bengali New year only).
Begin new and important work on the new year (more of this when I grew up).
So there was a lot of intention to start the year powerfully.
Just like the morning is an important time that sets the mood and tone for the day, so is the first day of the year.
And the first week I would say. You can build up momentum during this time.
Once you have the momentum in your favor, a lot of hard things become a lot easier.
That is the magic of a new beginning. We all deserve a fresh start.
Sometimes, the ending of a year, and a decade lets you mentally wipe the slate keen and look forward with a fresh perspective. That is the gift of a new year.
And every new day for that matter.
Fresh starts are very valuable.
Why is new year important for you? What does it signify for you? Why do you celebrate New Year?
