Gott Nytt År, Happy New Year!

Firandet av tolvslaget är årets första kalenderfest. Nyårsaftonen har sitt namn Sylvester efter påven Silvester, som dog den 31 december år 335.

I traditioner utanför Västerlandet och i olika tidpunkter i historien förläggs som bekant det nya året till andra tidpunkter. I Sverige var den 25 december nyårsdag fram till 1500-talet, men firades på vissa håll ända in på 1700-talet.
