Understanding 'YEAR' on the first day of new year!!!

With the new year around the corner; having celebrated it for the eternity welcomed by people, the term made me restless. What exactly is a year; where did it come from ? This is what I found out: Read on...

The word "year" is also used of periods loosely associated but not strictly identical with either the astronomical or the calendar year, such as the seasonal year, the fiscal year or the academic year, etc.
The term year can mean the orbital period of any Planet, Venus completes its own orbit. The International System of Units does not propose one. A common abbreviation in international use is (for Latin annus), in English y or yr. Due to the Earth's axial tilt, the course of a year sees the passing of the seasons, marked by changes in weather, hours of daylight, and consequently vegetation and fertility. Generally four seasons are considered: Summer, winter, autumn and Spring.

May this new year take you beyond the horizon of happiness, Joy, abundance of laughter you wished for.
More importantly, may you be bestowed with all the strength to do what you wish and yearn to do.
Stay Gyaat !!!!
