In The Beginning . . .

Today marks the artificial beginning of the actual cosmic phenomenon we call a 'year' - the time it takes our planet to orbit once around the sun. The Gregorian calendar we use today was created in 1582 because the church didn't like easter moving around so much. For no logical reason the year begins today rather than a dozen days ago on the winter solstice.
