Origin of New Years Resolutions

    I am a third year journalism student and I was wondering if anyone could help me with a query for a feature I am writing.

    I would like to know the origin of New Year Resolutions.

    I need to be able to use the material and possibly quote parts of it, so if anyone is from a history society or something, then that would be great.

    The magazine I am writing is for educational purposes only, so don't worry about anyone seeing it.

    I am aiming the magazine at teenagers, so I think it is important for them to gain some background information.

    After some research I have found varying stories that contradict one another, so if would be great if anyone of authority could give me the real answer!

    Thanks in advance for any help.
