HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here’s to a fantastic, amazing, wonderful 2014!

January, the month of new beginnings and making/breaking new year’s resolutions. Though traditionally winter was considered a month-less period, eventually January replaced March as the first month in the Roman calendar. It was named after the god of the doorway, Janus who was said to have two faces allowing him to look backwards and forwards into the old and new year simultaneously. The Anglo-Saxons called January ‘wolf monath’ because hungry wolves came into towns in search of food. It’s typically the coldest month in the northern half of the world (and the warmest on the other half).

January's birthstone is the garnet representing constancy. The month’s flower, the carnation, symbolizes love and fascination and is one of the world's oldest cultivated flowers.

It is the month of New Year’s Day, Fruit Cake Toss Day (the third) and Rubber Duckie Day (the thirteenth), Thank You month, Hot Tea Month, and Clean Up Your Computer Month. Personality traits of those born in January include ambition, a love to teach, critical, hardworking, reserved, and the desire to make others happy.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you
