Why the odd time for the New Year
I tried to search for this, but searching for "New Year+Date" was not very helpful.
Why was the date of New Years day set when it was? I kow the Chinese New Year is based on the Lunar cycle, and that it normally happens in early to mid February. What wa the reasoning for setting 'our' calendar to turn over on a date when nothing seemed to happen, as opposed to the Solstice, or the March Equinox... when stuff begins to come alive again in the North?
