I've never understood why nobody celebrates New Month's Days?

Because it's a solar calendar. Month's are merely a convenience. That would be like celebrating a new hour because it's more often than a day.

People who use the lunar calendar, however, do celebrate each new month. And considering there's a few billion of those people, it gets its fair share.
