Since its seeds were planted 4000 years ago in ancient Babylon, the New Year has been a time both of celebration and introspection, when thoughts turn to wishes for good things in the coming year. Today, the tradition continues through the ritual of resolutions, as people throughout the world resolve to lose weight, shape up, stop smoking, get organized, cut costs, find a soul mate, or a better job.
