Facts about New Year Eve

Happy New Year!!

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 the Roman Empire since 45 BC. Romans originally dedicated New Year’s Day to Janus, the god of gates, doors, and beginnings for whom the first month of the year (January) is named. Later, as a date in the Gregorian calendar of Christendom, New Year’s Day liturgically marked the Feast of the Circumcision of Christ, and is still observed as such in the Anglican Church and Lutheran Church. In present day, with most countries now using the Gregorian calendar as their de facto calendar, New Year’s Day is probably the world’s most celebrated public holiday, often observed with fireworks at the stroke of midnight as the new year starts in each time zone.

The International Date Line (IDL) is an imaginary line of longitude on the Earth’s surface located at about 180 degrees east (or west) of the Greenwich Meridian. And the New year comes first at The Line Islands that are part of the Republic of Kiribati are in a time zone with the earliest time in the world: UTC + 14. The time of day is the same as in Hawaii, but one day ahead.

New Year Countdown – Kiritimati

New Year’s Eve is all about numbers. Indeed, we spend the entire day counting down the hours until 11 p.m., when we start counting the minutes, which we do until 11:59 p.m., when we start counting the seconds. Suffice it to say, there isn’t another day of the year when more people actually take the time to count.

Meaning of Name
Jyotsna:    Goddess Durga

Orgin:    Indian Name
Category:    Hindu Name

Who is she?

Jyotsna   is a woman who often seems to be quite out of reach and this may be due to her natural reserve and aloof manner. In any case, Jyotsna   doesn´t leave a neutral impression on those she meets and her distant and apparently disdainful demeanour is certainly a factor in making her appear enigmatic. Introspective and very introverted, Jyotsna   tends to retreat into her ivory tower if life disappoints her, daydreams often bringing her the comfort that reality is unable to provide. Indeed, she is an inspired, sensitive and emotional soul who isn´t cut out for struggle or hardship and is allergic to stress. Rather possessive and overbearing, Jyotsna   is like the ant in the well-known fable: quite fond of material wealth and reluctant to lend or share her assets. She is something of an ?outsider?, perhaps because she is fiercely independent and stands out through her originality (be it an intellectual distinction or in the way she dresses), or because she isolates herself from others throgh her unceremonious and curt attitude. So yes, Jyotsna   is a particularly disconcerting and elusive female: communication can often be challenging for her, so she prefers to remain taciturn, half hoping that others will read her mind, often followed by disappointment when this results in her feeling misunderstood. However deep down, she is actually extremely determined and strong-willed! It is true that she can occasionally give in to laziness, putting off until tomorrow that which she could easily do today… But with the karmic 4, all extremes are possible, and Jyotsna   is just as likely to invest herself in her work (notably if she was born in April or on the 4th, 13th, 22nd or 31st, or if she has a life Path Number of 4) as to choose an easier life focusing on her home, family and personal relationships. As a child, it is necessary to provide constant motivation and encouragement in order to avoid her becoming withdrawn. Her clever and practical mind would benefit from manual or esthetic activities such as pottery, drawing or sewing, because Jyotsna   tends to be a perfectionist who is meticulous in all that she does.

What does she like?
Jyotsna   is a very sentimental creature who dreams of a cosy home and a heart that will keep her warm for a lifetime, and her priorities in life are to love and to be loved in return. Her natural inclination is to beauty and harmony, which is why she appreciates beautiful objects, elegant clothes and comfort. Gentlemen, be forewarned that Jyotsna   is likely to have difficulty choosing a partner (karmic 6) and when she does, she may still find plenty of reasons to be unsatisfied. It´s actually quite straightforward: she simply expects her Prince Charming to be handsome, wealthy, intelligent, courteous, conciliatory and in possession of a certain gift for psychology…

What does she do?
When it comes to professional commitment, Jyotsna could be hesitant and allow herself to be influenced by her family environment (or she may actually step into the professional shoes of one of her parents). However, if she is able to choose she could be tempted by the artistic or esthetic domains (decoration, painting, drawing, hairdressing and floral art), where precision or thoroughness are prerequisite; occupations connected with the earth, nature or animals, or those of an avant-garde nature, most likely related to fashion or possibly the latest technology (information technology…), otherwise, she could choose an activity concerned with the care and support of others that would enable her to make the most of her psychological talents.

Emotions with colors

Colors are a key consideration in brand and logo development. The palette selected for the logo identity and supporting colors used throughout various communication pieces are intentional, whether to evoke emotion, provide visual cues or collectively tell a story. The colors selected for a palette plays a big role in the success of marketing and advertising campaigns, because well-defined color schemes give consumers visual cues about the promises of the brand and elicit emotional response.

The impact of a brand mark’s color may be unconscious to the consumer, but it’s an important exercise for an ad agency or marketing firm with the client team to undertake. Determining brand or campaign colors is about science and emotion. Colors elicit a variety of emotions from us. The wrong colors can be disastrous for a company.
