NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 14 March 1914

NEW YEAR'S DAY CUSTOMS It is surprising how many quaint customs and beliefs concerning Now New Year's Day still survive in out of-the-way places (says "The "Westmin ster Gazette"). One of the oldest cus toms, which originated in ancient Rome, is the giving' of presents. This custom nourished at the English Court until the seventeenth century, and still exists in Scotland. -.V strange belief in some parts of the country is that no washing must be done on New Year's Day for fear of washing some member of the family out of existence during the ensuing year. From Cornwall comes a superstitition which tells how to ensure a plentiful supply of money. On New Year's Eve a coin is placed outside upon the window-sill and must not be ' taken in until the New Year; money . will then continue to come in all the year. (It is not advisable to put your ' coin on the sill of a ground-floor win dow, or money may go out instead of » coming in!) i
