A New Year’s Custom Made Resolute by Ancients

The ancient Babylonians are said to have been the first people to make New Year’s resolutions, some 4,000 years ago. They were also the first to hold recorded celebrations in honor of the new year—though for them the year began not in January but in mid-March, when the crops were planted.

Don’t feel bleu, Jan 20th is (National) Cheese Lover’s Day

Here’s some gouda trivia…

  • There is between 900 – 1,400 varieties of cheese, all classified by texture & more flavorful at room temperature.
  • Americans consume over 31 lbs. of cheese per year. The French eat over 50 lbs. of cheese per year.
  • Cheese was first made between 7,500 and 8,000 B.C., first discovered by accident in Poland and/or Arabia.
  • The world’s largest cheese was put on display on this day in 1964 at the New York World’s Fair, weighing over 34,000 lbs.

There is no identifying creator of this day, and the “National” designation requires an act of congress or presidential proclamation. Who cares, pair with wine and friends!
