    I will skip it. On the stroke of midnight it will be January 1, 1993.

    it would seem more productive to use a different system, maybe a lunar calendar. if serious then whether you know it or not you are using a system that arbitrarily starts on the year 1993 and in the end is still based on this pagan system you speak against. how many January 1, 1993s have passed? You are essentially making up your own calendar system which someone could say this is the 26th January 1, 1993 that has been counted.

    All I know is that it's 1993. A truly GREAT year.

    Should I also disregard the 7 days of the week as well since they're named after pagan gods/goddesses?

    Yep. January -blasphemous. February is named for February, the pagan Roman lent. March is Mars’s month. April is Aphrodite’s month. I’m rather fond of her, truth be told, and have performed “rites of worship” at HER altar since I was 11, so we’ll give April a pass. But May - that’s Maya’s month. June is Juno’s. July and August is two Caesars, but they were proclaimed God’s, so that’s pagan too. After that the months are monotonously numbered, but the DAYS -O Lala! Monday, Tiew’s day, Wotan’s Day, Thor’s Day, Freya’s Day, Saturn’s day, and the day of the Sun! Drenched in paganism! It’s all gotta go (except for Venus - ‘cause she’s really sexy). Makes sense.

    But yet it's still January 1st, thus you are still implicitly honouring Janus. Wouldn't it be better to continue to count the years and stop using pagan names for the months? BTW, happy Jan 1st 1993.

    Zechariah 14
    "1Behold, a day of the LORD is coming when your plunder will be divided in your presence. 2For I will gather all the nations for battle against Jerusalem, and the city will be captured, the houses looted, and the women ravished. Half of the city will go into captivity, but the rest of the people will not be removed from the city.

    3Then the LORD will go out to fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. 4On that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half the mountain moving to the north and half to the south. 5You will flee by My mountain valley, for it will extend to Azal. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD my God will come, and all the holy ones with Him.

    6On that day there will be no light, no cold or frost. 7It will be a day known only to the LORD, without day or night; but when evening comes, there will be light.

    8And on that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half of it toward the eastern seaa and the other half toward the western sea,bin summer and winter alike. 9On that day the LORD will become King over all the earth—the LORD alone, and His name alone.

    10All the land from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem will be turned into a plain, but Jerusalem will be raised up and will remain in her place, from the Benjamin Gate to the site of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the royal winepresses.11People will live there, and never again will there be an utter destruction. So Jerusalem will dwell securely.

    12And this will be the plague with which the LORD strikes all the peoples who have warred against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they stand on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.

    13On that day a great panic from the LORD will come upon them, so that each will seize the hand of another, and the hand of one will rise against the other. 14Judah will also fight at Jerusalem, and the wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected—gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance. 15And a similar plague will strike the horses and mules, camels and donkeys, and all the animals in those camps.

    16Then all the survivors from the nations that came against Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD of Hosts, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.c 17And should any of the families of the earth not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of Hosts, the rain will not fall on them. 18And if the people of Egypt will not go up and enter in, then rain will not fall on them; this will be the plague the LORD inflicts on the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.
    19This will be the punishment of Egypt and of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.

    20On that day, HOLY TO THE LORD will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, and the cooking pots in the house of the LORD will be like the sprinkling basins before the altar.21Indeed, every pot in Jerusalem and Judah will be holy to the LORD of Hosts, and all who sacrifice will come and take some pots and cook in them. And on that day there will no longer be a Canaanited in the house of the LORD of Hosts."


    One things for sure, there will be a day when all the nation's will be on Yah's timeline...or they will be removed...come quickly Yahshua my Adonai!

    *Oh yeah, I advise you all to read "LORD" as YHWH (or Yahuah) as that will be settled once and for all at that time as well!

    If you take the day off on New Years you are just contributing to the two faced god.

    I am confused as to whether or not this is satire.

    Romans 14:5-6

    Whatever you do for and on that day let it be to the Lord and your convictions through the Spirit guide you.

    There is no blanket answer that is right or wrong as it changes by the person. What is good for one may be destruction for another.
