New Year's Day
Every Month of the Year!
Why celebrate New Year's only once a year? Itís possible to celebrate New
Year's every month of the year (more than 100 New Year's Days each year!).
Celebrate Sekhmet in January, Chinese New Year in January or
February, Noruz in March, Baisakhi in April, Buddhist New Year in
May, Runic New Year in June, Armenian New Year in July, Shenshai New
Year in August, Rosh Hashanah in September, Samhain in October,
Dipavali in November (normally), and Papal States New Year in December.
Please note that the new year celebrations listed below are for 2008. Many New Year's
Days, especially religious ones such as the Chinese, Jewish, and
Muslim, change from year to year. We have tried to be as accurate as
possible. If you find any discrepancies, please email the International Special Events Registry.
Nothing requires we celebrate the new year only once a year. Indeed,
before 1752, Americans celebrated New Year's Day on March 25th (Lady
Day according to the old Celtic religion and the Feast of the
Annunciation according to the Christian religion). Great Britain and
its colonies changed their New Year's celebrations to January 1st
when they changed from the old Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar in 1751.
