New Year’s Day 2025 and 2026 in Syria

Syria celebrates New Year’s Day with a public holiday every 1 January, as does most of the rest of the world. However, the celebrations really begin on New Year’s Eve and reach a high point with the turning of the clock from 11:59pm on 31 December to midnight on 1 January.

New Year’s Day is a time of resolutions and starting fresh for some, while for others it is spent recovering from a big, late night spent with friends and family.

For the 10 percent or so of Syrians who are Christian, New Year’s Day on 1 January is the culmination of a festive season that began with December Solstice on 21 December and then Christmas Day on 25 December. Both of the former are also national holidays in Syria.

Christmas is a time of shopping, church-attendance, and in-home parties. New Year’s Eve is a time for remembering the past and looking forward to the future.
