*Note – New Year does not happen at the same time around the world. I realize a lot of you know that already, but, for those that do not….
Happy New Year 2016 to every one of you. Okay, allow us to look back upon 2015 and see just what each and every one of us has done to make the universe a better place.
For those of you who did not contribute to make the world a better place or better made your body, last year then below is some instruments of suicide that I highly recommend. In Fact for future references please use these prior to the year ending so your complete waste of life will not be carried into the New Year.
- Gun – Quickest and best method of riding your useless ass from our site. Simply place the gun to the site of your head or in your mouth, and with a pull of the trigger you just made the world a better place.
- Knife- Not recommended for use due to the fact most people do not know how to do this properly. But, if you must use a knife go somewhere that no one is around and place at least a 6 inch blade into your stomach and turn the blade in a complete 360 degree motion. The turning will ensure a non clot.
- Pills – Not effective and mostly used by attention seekers.
- Jumping from a high place – This method can be very effective if this is done from the height of about 400 feet, anything less and you stand the very unwanted chance of living.
- Hanging – This can be done if you tie a rope from a high tree branch or place that will be higher than the length of you and the rope. I recommend greasing the rope for a better chance of snapping your neck.
The above ways are just some ways. Remember suicide is not recommended for people 21 or younger. And if you are a worthless piece of shit in life please at least be successful at ending your worthless existence.
Please do not do or try suicide for attention purposes. Just get in shape and run around naked if you want attention.
Okay, now moving on to the Happy New Year 2016.
New Year is the time at which a new calendar year begins and the calendar’s year count increments by one. The New Year of the Gregorian calendar, today mostly in use, falls on 1 January (New Year’s Day), as was the case both in the old Roman calendar (at least after about 713 BCE) and in the Julian calendar that succeeded it. The order of months was January to December in the Old Roman calendar during the reign of King Numa Pompilius in about 700 BCE.
1 January: The first day of the civil year in the Gregorian calendar used by most countries. Contrary to common belief in the west, the civil New Year of January 1 is not an Orthodox Christian religious holiday. The Eastern Orthodox liturgical calendar makes no provision for the observance of a New Year. January 1 is itself a religious holiday, but that is because it is the feast of the circumcision of Christ (8 days after his birth), and a commemoration of saints. While the liturgical calendar begins September 1, there is also no particular religious observance attached to the start of the new cycle.
The early development of the Christian liturgical year coincided with the Roman Empire, and later the Byzantine Empire, both of which employed a taxation system labeled the Indiction, the years for which began on September 1. This timing may account for the ancient church’s establishment of September 1 as the beginning of the liturgical year, despite the official Roman New Year’s Day of January 1 in the Julian calendar, because the indiction was the principal means for counting years in the empires, apart from the reigns of the Emperors.Which leads to the question just when was Christmas first celebrated? I will cover that one in another post.
After the sack of Rome in 410, communications and travel between east and west deteriorated. Liturgical developments in Rome and Constantinople did not always match, although a rigid adherence to form was never mandated in the church. Nevertheless, the principal points of development were maintained between east and west. The Roman and Constantinopolitan liturgical calendars remained compatible even after the East-West Schism in 1054. Separations between the Roman Catholic ecclesiastical year and Eastern Orthodox liturgical calendar grew only over several centuries’ time. And just who are the Catholics anyway? Catholicism is not true Christianity.
The present-day Eastern Orthodox liturgical calendar is the virtual culmination of the ancient eastern development cycle, though it includes later additions based on subsequent history and lives of saints. It still begins on 1 September or the “old” (standard) Julian calendar, depending on which is used by a particular Orthodox Church. Hence, it may fall on 1 September on the civil calendar, or on 14 September (between 1900 and 2099 inclusive).
The present-day Coptic Orthodox liturgical calendar reflects the same fundamental ancient structures, even though its early break from Eastern Orthodoxy in 452 shows evidence of a separate development. The Coptic calendar is based on the ancient Egyptian calendar, which Emperor Augustus reformed in 25 BC to keep it forever in synch with the Julian calendar, but it is not identical to the Julian calendar. The Coptic liturgical new year, at the feast of Neyrouz, synchronized with the Julian September 1 at a different point from the Gregorian calendar, has therefore a different degree of separation today. Between 1900 and 2099, Neyrouz occurs on 11 September (Gregorian), with the exception of the year before Gregorian leap years, when it occurs on 12 September. (The Coptic year 1731 began in September 2013.) The Ethiopian Orthodox new year, Enkutatash, falls on the same date as Neyrouz. The Ethiopian calendar year 2006 began on 11 September 2013.
So now I know this may be a bit much to take in right now. Let me break it down, NOT EVERYONE CELEBRATES THE NEW YEAR AT THE SAME TIME.
In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII while reforming the Julian calendar established 1 January as the beginning of a New Year of the Gregorian calendar. So we have allowed some Pope to tell us when to celebrate the New Year. Hmmm, again who the FUCK is the Pope?
Because of the division of the globe into time zones, the new year moves progressively around the globe as the start of the day ushers in the New Year. The first time zone to usher in the New Year, just west of the International Date Line, is located in the Line Islands, a part of the nation of Kiribati, and has a time zone 14 hours ahead of UTC. All other time zones are 1 to 25 hours behind, most in the previous day (31 December); on American Samoa and Midway, it is still 11 PM on 30 December. These are among the last inhabited places to observe New Year. However, uninhabited outlying U.S. territories Howland Island and Baker Island are designated as lying within the time zone 12 hours behind UTC, the last places on earth to see the arrival of 1 January. These small coral islands are found about midway between Hawaii and Australia, about 1,000 miles west of the Line Islands. This is because the International Date Line is a composite of local time zone arrangements, which winds through the Pacific Ocean, allowing each locale to remain most closely connected in time with the nearest or largest or most convenient political and economic locales with which each associates. By the time Howland island sees the new year, it is 2 AM on 2 January in the Line Islands of Kiribati.
The Baby New Year is a personification of the start of the New Year commonly seen in editorial cartoons. He symbolizes the “birth” of the next year and the “passing” of the prior year; in other words, a “rebirth”. Baby New Year’s purpose varies by myth, but he generally performs some sort of ceremonial duty over the course of his year such as chronicling the year’s events or presiding over the year as a symbol.
Rosh Hashanah (Hebrew: רֹאשׁ הַשָּׁנָה, literally “head of the year”) is the Jewish New Year. The biblical name for this holiday is Yom Teruah (Hebrew: יוֹם תְּרוּעָה), literally “day [of] shouting/blasting”, sometimes translated as the Feast of Trumpets. It is the first of the High Holy Days (Hebrew: יָמִים נוֹרָאִים Yamim Nora’im, lit. “Days of Awe”) specified by Leviticus 23:23-32, which usually occur in the early autumn of the Northern Hemisphere.
Rosh Hashanah is a two-day celebration, which begins on the first day of Tishrei. Tishrei is the first month of the Jewish civil year, but the seventh month of the ecclesiastical year.
Rosh Hashanah has its origin in the beginning of the economic year in the ancient Near East, marking the start of the agricultural cycle. In its theological interpretation, the day is said to be the anniversary of the creation of Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, and their first actions toward the believed realization of humanity’s role in God’s world.
Rosh Hashanah customs include sounding the shofar (a hollowed-out ram’s horn), following the prescription of the Hebrew Bible to “raise a noise” on Yom Teruah; and eating symbolic foods such as apples dipped in honey to evoke a “sweet new year”.
Hollowed out Ram Horn
The earliest origins of the Hebrew New Year are connected to the beginning of the ecoar in the agricultural societies of the ancient Near East. The New Year was the beginning of the cycle of sowing, growth, and harvest, the latter marked by its own set of major agricultural festivals. The Semites in general set the beginning of the new year in autumn, while other ancient civilizations such as the Persians or Greeks chose spring for that purpose, in both cases the primary reason being agricultural – the time of sowing the seed and of bringing in the harvest. American Christians are FAT AND LAZY. AMERICAN CHRISTIANS KNOWS HOW TO STUFF THEIR FACES AND SIT ON THEIR ASS, AS THEY JUDGE EVERYONE ELSE. Fuck American Christians that have no true dedication to anything other than their bellies. While True servants of GOD, true Christians celebrate and observe these festivals.
Religious groups such as the Messianic Jews and the Church of God groups celebrate the biblical Feast of Trumpets as a fulfillment of the New Covenant marriage between Christ and the Church.
The Yamim Nora’im are preceded by the month of Elul, during which Jews are supposed to begin a self-examination and repentance, a process that culminates in the ten days of the Yamim Nora’im known as beginning with Rosh Hashanah and ending with the holiday of Yom Kippur.
If you have never heard of these things, then surely you have no dedication to serving GOD. I will go more in-depth over the year. Let this be the year of feeding your soul.
Samaritans, in their strict interpretation of the Torah, preserve the biblical name of the festival celebrated on the first day of the seventh month (Tishrei), namely Yom Teruah, and in accordance with the Torah do not consider it to be a New Year’s day.
Rosh Hashanah meals usually include apples and honey to symbolize a sweet New Year.
Some of the symbolic foods eaten are dates, black-eyed peas, leek, spinach and gourd, all of which are mentioned in the Talmud: “Let a man be accustomed to eat on New Year’s Day gourds (קרא), and fenugreek, leeks (כרתי), beet (סילקא), and dates ( תמרי).” Pomegranates are used in many traditions, to symbolize being fruitful like the pomegranate with its many seeds.The use of apples and honey, symbolizing a sweet year. Typically, round challah bread is served, to symbolize the cycle of the year.
Again allow this to be the year of feeding the soul. Study and seek GOD. I hope you have enjoyed these interesting facts about the New Year and please leave a comment.
