History of Watchnight Services

though as Black Christians we "celebrate" the secular New Year's Eve and New Year's day, we must remember that watchnight services go back to Freedom's eve when we waited for the Emancipation Proclamation to be signed and on January 1st, 1863 we were legally declared free we continued to thank God through the years for all he has done....but the actual Hebrew calendar begins in the spring usually during the time of Passover/Resurrection Sunday(erroneously called Easter)..which makes sense since the Spring is when everything comes alive and new beginning starts
