It just seems "natural" to do things this way, to me at least...
Winter is associated with death, while Spring is likened to re-birth, growth, and awakening in a spiritual way.
It would be interesting to find out where the "New Year's Resolution" started?
Does anyone know?
My bet is that it has to do with money......somewhere down the line.....peeps have spent a lot of money on Christmas, Holiday presents that they are
drained when the New Year arrives...so for many, yes, I will spend money on that gym membership, diet aids, counseling, ....fill in the blank... and
so I will shell out that extra cash in order to meet/keep my "resolution"
