Why is the first month called January?

January is named after the Roman god, Janus. Janus is the god of doors and the first month is the door to the year.┬áJanus represents all beginnings and possesses the ability to see all things — past and future. He is depicted by a two-faced person, looking forward and backward, and presides over the beginning and end of conflict, the line between war and peace.

We hope January is the beginning of everything you want!
