New Year’s Day Wishes in March-April..


How come we celebrate New year on January 1? Why does a financial year ends on March 31st and a new one starts on April 1st?
We all have different dates to celebrate various days n dates, anniversaries and festivals .. and what not!
And there are lot many New Year’s Day elsewhere otherwise! 🙂
