January is the first month of the year in both the Julian calendar and Gregorian calendar systems.
It is named for Janus, the Roman god of doors. In Roman mythology, Janus had two heads and looked both forwards and backwards. He was consider not only the god of doors and archways, but also of fresh beginnings and transitions. Sounds pretty perfect for January, doesn't it?
