January marks the beginning of the new year and owes its name to Janus, the Roman god of doors and gates. Janus had two faces, one looking forward and one looking back, making him an appropriate symbol for the transition from one year to the next, where one looks back at the past and forward to the future. This connection to Janus dates back to Roman times when the second king of Rome, Numa Pompilius is credited with adding January and February to an originally ten-month calendar

As the first month of the Gregorian calendar (established in 1582 with Pope Gregory XIII), January presents a time of new beginnings, resolutions, and the fresh potential of a new year. With 31 days, in the Northern Hemisphere, it is associated with the deep winter, while in the Southern Hemisphere, it is the peak of summer.

January has several birthstones, with garnet being the most recognized. Garnet comes in various colors, but the deep red garnet is most commonly associated with January and symbolizes constancy and loyalty. Other stones for January include the emerald, which represents success and love, and the rose quartz, known for its calming and reassuring properties.


The flower traditionally associated with January is the carnation, with the snowdrop a close second. The carnation comes in many colors, symbolizing pure love, admiration, and good luck. The snowdrop, one of the first blooming flowers of winter, symbolizes hope and beauty and the potential for growth and renewal.


Folk legends and lore surrounding January focus on themes of transition and protection. For example, carrying a garnet was believed to provide guidance and serve as a light in the darkness, protecting its bearer from nightmares. Rituals and traditions that are said to bring good fortune and ward off evil spirits for the year ahead are common superstitions in January
