Cheers to Nepali New Year 2070

As I have mentioned before, Nepal follows a different calendar than the Gregorian calendar so Nepali New Year falls on mid-April instead of 1st of January. Bikram Sambat or Nepali Calendar or Nepali patro is approximately 56 years and 8½ months ahead of the Gregorian calendar. Unlike Gregorian months, the lengths of Nepali months are not predetermined, and change from year to year, varying from 29 days to 32 days. The year 2070 started yesterday as 1st of Baishak, 2070.

In Nepal, people celebrate Nepali New Year in many different ways. Please read this post to learn more about celebration of Nepali New Year in Nepal.

For us, in Australia, this year had been great as the New Year Eve fell on Saturday and New Year on Sunday. First of all I can’t believe its year 2070 as the last Nepali year I remember writing would be year 2056 in Nepal.

Anyway, we had a great time with my cousins and brothers BBQing and drinking over the weekend. It was a good way to remember Nepal and enjoy ourselves on New Year’s Eve.

Then yesterday, we went out with our friends for dinner. Have to say it is great to get together and celebrate Nepali New Year even though we are not in Nepal.

I’m wishing every single one of you a year full of joy, good health, love, success and prosperity.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for riding along this journey with me. I appreciate all the love and support you guys have given me throughout the year and I hope you continue to do so this year too.

Till next time, take care
