    Happy New Year then.

    I didn't even know there was such a thing in Iran. Is it something to do with just the country or with Islam?

    I don't know. The whole world uses the gregorian calendar in relation to business etc. I don't see the point in classifying it as a 'new year'.

    Happy new year to any iranians here!

    Basically the iranian calendar is a solar one (not a lunar one) and so is similar to the gregorian one. The only difference is that instead of starting at some slightly random point (1st january) it starts exactly at the time of the spring equinox (so new years day is the first day of spring). The tradition goes back to a couple of thousand years bc (before islam etc) and most iranians celebrate it (even if they're british iranians as any excuse for a new year's party will do! )
    Happy Spring and New Year everyone...is it the same year (2004) for Iranians?

    Happy 1383! I wish my fellow Iranian compatriots all the best for the new year. I think I'll stay up for it: 06:48:37 AM March 20th GMT.

    May I add what a shame it is for this thread to have been brought into disrepute over a daft and off-topic squabble that could easily have been discussed through PMs. *sigh*
