MEMORABLE DAYS.

JANUARY This month takes its name from Janus, a Roman deity, to whom the first day of the year, and the first hour of the day were consecrated. There was a temple erected to bim in Rome, which was opened when a war began, and closed when it ceased.

The first day of January is the commencement of the year, and is celebrated under the name of New Year's day. The customs with which it is commemorated are different, in different countries, but in all, they are of a cheerful character, and mark the season as one of gaiety and mirth. The frontispiece of our book alludes to the birth of the new year, which is supposed to be celebrated by moonlight, and upon the ice. The man of snow, in the title-page, presents one of the schoolboy amusements common to the season, in all northern countries.
