Nepalese follow their own calendar
system known as the Bikram Era or
Bikram Sambat. New Year is called
Nawavarsha in Nepali Language and
is observed as an official holiday. The
day usually falls in the second week
of April. During this occasion people
go for picnics, have get-together and
celebrate the day socializing in various
ways. Musical programs are organized
at different places to mark the happy
beginning of the year.
