Persian Calendar now available in your Google Calendar

While many of you may be familiar with the Gregorian or Western calendar, the Persian, or Solar Hejri, calendar is used by many Persian speakers around the world. Starting today, you can display Persian dates alongside Gregorian ones in your Google Calendar. The Persian calendar begins each new year on the vernal equinox as precisely determined by astronomical calculations and observations. Each of the 12 months corresponds with a zodiac sign; this month’s zodiac is Aquarius, which corresponds to Bahman, the 11th month of the Persian calendar.

To enable the Persian calendar, go into Settings and select it as an Alternate calendar under the General tab.
