"For more than 30 years, the Feast of the Circumcision of Jesus,
which fell on Jan. 1, for several centuries, was replaced in the
liturgical calendar by a more ancient celebration, the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God." (Ask the Register, The Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska, Reprinted from December 13, 1996.)

"January 1st, commemorates the occasion when this rite of the Jewish religion was received by Our Lord, eight days after His birth. This festival is traceable to the year 567; it may be older."
(New Catholic Dictionary, 1910.)

Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God

"Pope Paul VI pronounced this special feast in 1970 to supercede the Feast of the Circumcision, which had been in vogue since early in the 6th Century. The Holy Father changed the feast to bring the Latin Calendar more into accord with Eastern tradition in the Byzantine Church which
emphasizes the Marian character of this feast as the octave of Christmas. This is, however, not a new feast for it had been celebrated as early as the 5th Century on the Sunday before Christmas. . . The Holy Father took
this occasion to also institute that a World Day of Peace be celebrated on this same day 'bringing forth fruits of peace in the hearts of many.'"
