In Roman mythology, Janus kept the gate of Heaven so he became god of doors and gates.He was very important because a house is only as strong as its doors. He was one of the minor gods. It was believed that his face was split in two since a door can let you in or out. It is said one side gave bad advice the other good. Janus was most often found in the Labyrinth and led most people to their deaths. It was the because of his split face that his name was given to the first month of the year. In January we look back on the last year and forward to the next. He usually drove people insane and caused people to kill themselves.
