With Xinjiang, it'd be hard to say as there are 19 distinct ethnic groups residing there... Uyghur's being the majority with 46%, followed by 39% Han... the others trailing in single digit percentages. The majority of the residents adhere to Islam. With that said, the Hijiri New Year falls on the first day of Muharram, the first month in the Islamic calendar. The Islamic calendar is lunar and is 11 to 13 days shorter than the Gregorian calendar, however it does consist of 12 months. It certainly doesn't coincide with the Gregorian calendar with regards to a new year. Days begin at the moment of sundown on one day and conclude at the moment of sundown the next. Following this rule, the calendar will differ by geographic location. Islamic year 1435 began on November 4/5 2013, Islamic year 1436 will begin October 24/25 2014.
