Similar to the New Year celebrations in neighboring cultures, the festivities of the Babylonian New Year begins in Adar/March 21st. In the southern and central parts of modern-day Iraq (Historical Babylonia), people still celebrate this day as the beginning of the New Year calling it “dukhool al-sana.” Households prepare trays filled with sweets, green branches, and candles to mark the celebration.
Wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
