Why is the new year celebrated today when the Bible says it is supposed to be 10 days before Passover?

I don’t get it!!!! Passover was months ago so why celebrate the New Year today? Please explain, thank you

Exo 12:1 The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt,
Exo 12:2 “This month shall be for you the beginning of months. It shall be the first month of the year for you.
Exo 12:3 Tell all the congregation of Israel that on the tenth day of this month every man shall take a lamb according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household.

    I think it was an adoption of a Babylonian new year celebration, since there had been the Babylonian captivity. I don’t know the entire answer, but someone else might flesh out what I’m saying.

    Ding dong! Today is September 9, 2010. Whose “New Year” are you celebrating? The western world celebrates it on January 1 and I think the Chinese one is in February.

    in the Torah there is no order to celebrate the first of Nisan (only the passover starting 14th). there is a law of the Torah to celebrate the first of Tishrei (the seventh month), though it is not called new year. see Lev. 23:24 and Numbers 29:1
    it seems that in Babylon they started to call “rosh hashna” this celebration .
