January 1, 2020 will be Chaos 1, YOLD 3186 in the Discordian calendar. It is currently Aftermath 73, YOLD 3185.
In the Julian calendar, today is December 19, 2019. New Year for it won't be until January 14th on the Gregorian calendar.
New Year in the Chinese calendar isn't until January 25th on the Gregorian calendar.
Samhain - usually somewhere between October 30th and November 3rd - is the witches' new year.
I could go on. The point is that we're all just imposing order on chaos and the chaos probably doesn't even notice. Time is meaningless. Tomorrow is just another day. Tonight is just another night. And I'll probably be sleeping through the transition.
