Have you planned a New Year’s resolution? If you have, you are following in a tradition that dates back 4000 years to the ancient Babylonians, they made pledges to their Gods each year, a bargain to ensure good harvests and well being, but they did it in March. The tradition moved to January under the Romans who made promises to their God Janus and so our pattern of pledges at the beginning of a New Year began, but evolved into a pledge to oneself.
