New Year's Resolutions

New Year's Resolutions 

The tradition of the New Year’s Resolution goes all the way back to 153 B.C. Janus, a mythical king of early Rome, who was placed at the head of the calendar.
With two faces, Janus could look back on past events and forward to the future. Janus became the ancient symbol for resolutions and many Romans looked for forgiveness from their enemies and also exchanged gifts before the beginning of each year. 
Today we find ourselves in the year 2014. Many of us respect these past traditions by remembering the good and the bad from the past year. We might even eat something special on the first day of the year with the hope that it will bring us good fortune. Many of us also have the old tradition of ‘out with the old and in with the new’. For some of us, especially in Italy, that might mean launching old kitchen appliances off the third floor balcony. For others it might be something as simple as quitting an old habit or scratching some of the items off of our to do list. However you decide to bring in the new year, remember that Accademia Firenze is here to help.
We have an eager staff that is ready and waiting to help you cross some things off your list. It is never too early to start ordering your towelling for the summer season, or to replace your current linen closet. Who doesn’t need a fresh set of luxury bed linens?
Now that the holidays are behind us, we can pay tribute to Janus by remembering all the wonderful memories that we have made and look to the future, which hopefully has a little room for some luxury along the way. Shop www.amancara.com now or call/email us with more specific requests.
