"New Year Around the World. The Gregorian calendar is generally accepted 

across the globe, and according to it, New Year commences every 365 days on 

January 1. But many countries follow different New Year Calendars as part of 

their tradition, and celebrate their traditional New Year according to that 


"Not all cultures celebrate New Year's Day on January 1. Here are 11 that have 

their New Year's on another day.

It appears to me that October is a magic month, I was born on October 27th and 

the 4 cultures above celebrate the start of their New Year from October 2 

to October 30th. If I can remember, I'll celebrate with them and celebrate for 7 

days instead of 1.
