[CONVENTION]: Janus Jubilee

Postby GerryR88 » Tue Oct 24, 2006 9:38 pm


December 29, 2006 - January 1, 2007; Orlando, FL.

BABYLONIA: Most historians believe New Year's Day is the oldest celebrated holiday in recorded history. Babylonians wrote about their celebrations over 4,000 years ago!

ROME: The ancient Romans gave each other New Year's gifts of branches from sacred trees. In later years, they gave gold-covered nuts or coins imprinted with pictures of Janus, the god of gates, doors, and beginnings. January was named after Janus, who had two faces--one looking forward and the other looking backward.

GREECE & EGYPT: The tradition of using a baby to signify the New Year began in Greece in 600 BC. It was their tradition to celebrate their god of wine, Dionysus, by parading a baby in a basket, representing the annual rebirth of that god as the spirit of fertility. Early Egyptians also used a baby as a symbol of rebirth.

PERSIA: The ancient Persians gave New Year's gifts of eggs, which symbolized productiveness.

CELTS: The Celtic priests of what is now England gave the people branches of mistletoe, which was considered sacred.

ORLANDO: Come celebrate this ancient festival with us here in the #1 destination in the world, Orlando, FL. Enter the gates of the Janus Jubilee!
