The month of January is named after Janus, the Roman god of beginning and endings. He was represented with a double-faced head, each looking in opposite directions. He was worshipped at the beginning of harvest time, planting, marriage, birth and other types of beginnings, especially the beginning of important events in a person's life. The double faced head appears on many Roman coins.
