1752 was the first year in England to officially begin on 1 January.Until the Calendar Act of 1752, the year in England began officially on 25 March (Lady Day), and not 1 January (even though this was when New Year’s Day was celebrated).



Other Catholic countries followed and adopted the Gregorian Calendar but England, being Protestant, did not.England therefore remained 10 days behind the New Style Calendar.By 1752 England was some 11 days behind other European countries.So in 1752 these days had to be cut out of the year to make the adjustment.

Therefore Wednesday 2 September 1752 was followed immediately by Thursday 14 September.

In Scotland, 1 January became the official beginning of the year in 1600, the day after 31 December 1599.
