This may be trivial,but I was wondering when the CoS decided to make the Satanic New Year the same as the regular calender.I have no problem with this...I am just curious as to when this happened and why.Its not in any books,so I am curious...I am not a member of CoS,but If I do feel compelled to join anything..you can be sure it will be CoS,or the "bedrock" as it is.I am thinking this info was passed to CoS members at some point..and I'm just curious...thanks for any input.

We use the same New Year.

The Church of Satan was founded on Walpurgisnacht (April 30), 1966 -- that year was declared Year I Anno Satanas. The declaration was made to apply retroactively to the previous months, so I AS began on January 1, even though this was more than a quarter of a year before the CoS was to be founded.

Of course, if you think some other day would make a better New Year, you've just invented an excuse for another party. I wouldn't be adverse to that logic.

Thanks for the info.I was just unsure about whether or not it was retroactive.
