## Why do we celebrate the new year? The origin of the new year's countdown

New Year's Eve is just a date on the calendar that marks an arbitrary (and moving!) point of Earth's orbit around the sun. But as it separates two years, we see it as an important occurrence in our lives. Whether you celebrate it or not, humanity (even in different moments, depending on the culture) counts down to zero on the last day of the year, prepared to start a new day after.

Propositions are made, good or bad memories are brought up, and we gather with people close to us. Fireworks light up the sky (often much more than they should), and maybe too many inhibitions are lost. Every place on Earth has its traditions for celebrating the coming of the New Year, but undeniably, one of the shared ones is a countdown to this special moment.
