Iranian New Year Starts

SMCCDI (information Service)
Mar 20, 2004

The Iranian New Year 1383 (of Solar Calendar) started at 10: 18' 37" (local time) on Saturday March 20, 2004. This precise timing is based on the start of Spring and to one full cycle made by the Earth around the Sun.

Heavy and unprecedented snow is falling on Tehran. Such climatic phenomenon hadn't happened since 31 years ago and many Iranians are seeing this as a sign of prosperity and freedom.

Most Iranians wishes and prayers were for health, happiness and freedom in this starting year.

The year 1383 is based on a muslim calendar rather than true Iranian basis. An increasing number of Iranians are seeking a calendar based on Iran's history.
