New year periodically occurs each year because we like counting time and we agree to count time based on certain agreement. At least, there are two systems: lunar and sun based.
This evening is a new year for our lunar based system called Hijri calendar. New year celebration in this system is generally different from the celebration of new year of Gregorian calendar. The difference is mostly due to cultural connection behind these calendar systems.
