Happy New Year 1562

TERESA AVILA - May he give you a happy new year
“May God keep you and your wife for many years. And may he give you a happy new year, for tomorrow is New Year’s Eve for 1562.”
Letter to her brother Don Lorenzo de Cepeda in Quito (Ecuador)
In fact, it was 24 December. In Avila, the new year began on Christmas Day, until 1564 when the date for beginning the new year was changed to 1 January.
