The original celebration of the new year dates back to 9000 BC

The original celebration of the new year dates back to 9000 BC when Neandrathals first observed the yearly molting of the dead skin of the animals around them in preparation for Winter. The early forms of human also observed that they themselves were shedding more skin than usual due to the dry winter climate and believed that this was a sign that they were being born anew as well. In fact, early forensics of Neanderthaw dwelling habitats showed that they created complex art installations of pieced together dead skin from themselves as well as the creatures around them which they burned in effigy to the god of Baby New Year.
