Funny... I'm in the US and was taught it was the druid new year
and that the Christians that overran England called all the old druids
"fools" for honoring the old date for the new year.

But, I guess, it's as someone else pointed out, a holiday of
many origins. As are most of our holidays. Plagerized from others...
