Happy New Year! - Google Doodle January 01, 2012

Today (January 01, 2012) Google is again present with the theme of Happy New Year!
At the words "Google" also appear other activities such as listening to music, singing, playing guitar, reading, cleaning. And there is a new 2012 calendar is attached there, and the date of January 1 given a circle. Yes, today is New Year's Day.

New Year's Day is observed on January 1, the first day of the year on the modern Gregorian calendar as well as the Julian calendar used in ancient Rome. With most countries using the Gregorian calendar as their main calendar, New Year's Day is the closest thing to being the world's only truly global public holiday, often celebrated with fireworks at the stroke of midnight as the new year starts. January 1 on the Julian calendar currently corresponds to January 14 on the Gregorian calendar, and it is on that date that followers of some of the Eastern Orthodox churches celebrate the New Year.

In cultures which traditionally or currently use calendars other than the Gregorian, New Year's Day is often also an important celebration. Some countries concurrently use the Gregorian and another calendar. New Year's Day in the alternative calendar attracts alternative celebrations of New year. You can read detail here.

Happy New Year for all
