#TamilNewYear is celebrated on the 1st day of the Tamil Month Chithirai which falls on April 13th / 14th every year, this is based on precise astronomical calculation and events, when sun leaves Meena Rasi (Pisces) and enters the first zodiac sign Mesha Rasi (Aries).

Not only Tamilians, but several other cultures (non Abrahamic) around Asia celebrates April 14th + or - 1 day as their new year.

Tamil New Year calculation is not based on seasons / places, if we depend on these entities, we cannot get an accurate date & time, we need something that is fixed which can’t be altered even if we look after 1000’s of years.
