    No, it is a secular creation that is of more use to global commercial concerns than religions. It is more likely that traditional cultural new year celebrations, for example, Chinese, Muslim or Jewish new year festivals will have a religious significance to their origins. January is a rather arbitrary month for New Year and has no Christian significance. The annual global festivals of New Year reflect the supremacy of the secular in our global institutions over the religious.


For Christians - no, we have Christmas instead. But еhere are religions having New Year as a religious event, but still, it's not only a celebration of the beginning of the year but also a day of worship to the gods.
