If you're on the isle of Foula, it's Newerday (New Year's Day) on 13th Jan. The 30+ people who live on the isle observe the Julian calendar, which was last observed by the rest of the UK in 1752 when the Gregorian calendar was adopted. Since the leap year in 1900, Foula residents have celebrated Christmas and New Year on January 6 and January 13 🎉 Follow our link in bio to find out more.
