January Facts & Tidbits

January: Janus, Giclee PrintJanuary, first month of the year, is named for Janus, the Roman god of doors, gates, beginnings, and and endings, hence his two faces for looking forward and backwards. Janus is the root of the word describing the caretaker of doors and halls (passage ways), a janitor.

The original Roman calendar consisted of 10 months (304 days) as they considered winter a monthless period. Circa 700 BCE the months of January and February were separated so the calendar would match a standard lunar year, plus one day, to equal 355 days, and thus avoiding the Roman superstition of even numbers.

Garnets signify light heart, loyalty, affection. The name “garnet” comes from Latin granatus (“grain”), possibly a reference to Punica granatum (“pomegranate”), a fruit with red seeds similar in shape, size, and color to some garnet crystals.
