On Jan. 1, precisely at 12:01 a.m., the 2017 New Year will begin. It is easy to determine its beginning. However, it is much more difficult to determine its end. I don’t mean midnight Dec. 31; no, I mean when does the New Year cease to be new and become an old year? Is it an old year on Jan. 1 at 12:02 a.m.? No?
