LEWISBORO, N.Y. – New Year’s is a holiday most associated with revelry, champagne, noisemakers and the ball drop in Times Square. Maybe the most notorious tradition connected to New Year’s is the resolution – a commitment to a personal goal we often struggle to keep.

The tradition of making New Year’s resolution goes back a long way. According to “Now You Know: The Big Book of Answers” (Toronto: Dundurn, 2007) by Doug Lennox, the ancient Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts. The Romans began each year by making promises to the god Janus, for whom the month of January is named. During Medieval times, knights took the "peacock vow" at the end of the Christmas season each year to re-affirm their commitment to chivalry.

Are you making a New Year’s resolution this year? We’re taking a poll to find out what The Lewisboro Daily Voice readers are promising to do in 2013. Take a moment and fill it out and have a safe and happy holiday.
