I'm not entirely sure that any of you guys would know of Norouz, but it's a pretty important festival Wink

It's the Iranian New year! Excited/Very Happy This year, it's on March 20th at (I think) 10:44 Excited/Very Happy Because the old Persian calendar was based on the Zoroastrian calendar, it is Lunar, so the date and time changes every year Happy The year is 1388 in Iran. Excited/Very Happy

We basically celebrate with a haft-sin table (pronounced haft-seen) and by eating lots of traditional Iranian food Happy

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nowruz

(There are hundreds of spellings of Nowruz as Persian is written in Arabic script, so it's difficult to translate it accurately XD)

Aye, I know what you mean Happy Usually, the Islamic New Year is around October, so (by the Gregorian calendar) is probably the latest. I think the Hindu New Year is quite late too.. Happy

I kinda thought that the islamic new year in my eyes was the earliest,
though it can be seen as the latest too,

I know nothing about the hindu new year though Sad
