January 1st is not the beginning of the year, it was only declared to be the 1st day of the year by a couple of men. The true beginning of the year falls in the season of spring, in the Northern Hemisphere that occurs between the months of March and April.
“The idea of using the first day of January to mark the beginning of the new year dates back to time of Julius Caesar…..Even as the Julian calendar spread in popularity, some areas continued to use dates in March and September as New Year’s Day. …During the 1570s, Pope Gregory put the Gregorian calendar into effect, restoring Jan. 1 as the first day of the new year. This change in tradition wasn’t officially implemented by England until 1752. Up until then, England and the American colonies had celebrated the new year on March 25.” https://www.livescience.com/32913-why-does-the-new-year-start-on-january-1st.html
