The tradition of Baby New Year dates back to the early twentieth century in the United States.
The Baby New Year is an American personification of the start of a new year, commonly seen in various New Year's customs, especially holiday cards and
illustrations for store window displays.
The stereotypical representation of Baby New Year is as a male baby wearing nothing more than a diaper, a top hat and a sash across his torso that shows
the year he is representing. Sometimes he is holding an hourglass or is otherwise associated with one. Often, he is not a complete newborn but is
slightly older, because he is frequently shown standing on his own, barely walking, or having a small amount of head hair.
The myth associated with Baby New Year is that he is a baby at the beginning of his year, but Baby New Year quickly grows up until he is an
elderly bearded man like Father Time at the end of his year.
At this point, he hands over his duties to the next Baby New Year.
