January is the first month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian calendar.
It has 31 days and the 1st day is known as New Year's Day.
It is named after the roman god, JANUS, the god of beginnings and transitions, of gates and doorways, thus,
January is the door to the year.
Janus is known to have two face, looking to the future and to the past.
January's birthstone is GARNET.
It means purity, truth, faithfulness and friendship, constancy and loyalty.
It is also known that garnet is a stone for successful business by putting 3 or more garnet on your desk.
They say it can also cure depression by putting a stone under your pillow.
Wearing garnet as jewelry can make a person popular and have self-esteem.
(I haven't tried these yet, though...)
January's birth flower is CARNATION.
It represent pride, beauty, admiration and gratitude, fascination, distinction,
divine love and woman.
It is also a symbol of a mother's undying love.

I think this is all about it for January.
For me, January is the month where I have high hopes. It's where I start to plan to better my life. That its still never too late to change for the better.
Welcoming the new year with new hopes, new smiles, new life!
