Happy New Year!

Fun Facts about New Years

      Hopefully everyone had a great holiday and they are ready to kick off the new year with a bang.  It is fascinating to learn about the different traditions that people have going into a new year from how they celebrate the strike of midnight to new years resolutions.  There are facts all over the internet with regards to New Years.  We thought it would be fun to share some of these facts.  At
www.cnn.com we found the following interesting tidbits worth sharing:


-                 - New Years dates back to Mesopotamia around 2000 BC and the early Romans actually used March 1st as the new years date

-          - Ancient Persians gave New Year's gifts of eggs, which symbolized productiveness

-          - Many areas of the United States eat black eyed peas for good luck on New Year’s Day

-          - Scottish Poet Robert Burns wrote “Auld Lang Syne” in 1788 that is traditionally sung at midnight on New Year’s Eve

-          - The first rooftop celebration atop One Times Square, a fireworks display, took place in 1904 and was produced by The New York Times to inaugurate their new headquarters in Times Square and celebrate the renaming of Longacre Square to Times Square and the first ball drop atop One Times Square was 3 years later in 1907

-          - The original New Years Eve ball was made of iron and wood and weighed 700 pounds until a “new” New Years Eve ball was introduced in 2008 as a geodesic sphere and weighs 11,875 pounds.

 We hope everyone is ready for a great 2018 and please let us know if Susan Annis and Associates can make selling and/or purchasing a new home for you part of those 2018 plans. HAPPY NEW YEARS FROM THE ENTIRE TEAM: Susan, Wes, Carrie, Natalie, Ward, Josh, Rhonda and Jacqueline!
