On the occasion of the New Year, review the origin of the symbols and customs related to this period ... It's up to you!

Question (1/6)

In France, the new year has always started on January 1st.

That's right. It's wrong.


March 1 at the time of the Romans, November 1 for the Celts, December 25 under Charlemagne ... It was not until 1564 that Charles IX fixed by edict on January 1 as the first day of the year. It may change someday.
