DAY 26: #31DayAspiringPolyglot Challenge – Learning Persian (Fārsī)

“I need the seasons to live to the rhythm of rain and sun.”

Sophie Marceau

Gregorian Calendar vs Iranian Solar Hijri Calendar

There I was minding my own business and looking up the days of the week when I came across the Iranian Solar Hijri Calendar. It is also called the Shamsi Hijri Calendar. Instead of months like the traditional Gregorian calendar you and I are used to, it is decided by astronomical calculation for the Iran Standard Time meridian (52.5° E; UTC+03:30). Each time period corresponds to a zodiac sign with the New Year (Nowruz) always falling on the vernal equinox.

For example: January 26, 2019 AE is written as 6 Bahman 1397 SH

Additionally the week starts on a Saturday and ends on a Friday.
