Yep, it’s all about those New Year’s resolutions.Resolutions are as traditional to New Year’s as turkey is to Thanksgiving.According to the Web site, the tradition of the New Years resolutions dates back to 153 B.C. when the Romans placed Janus, a mythical king of early Rome, at the head of the calendar.
