New Year’s Day 2025 and 2026 in Tajikistan

New Year’s Day is a public holiday in Tajikistan. However, in 2015, Tajikistan’s government banned both Christmas and New Year’s Day from being celebrated publicly.

For the most part, this ban was a culmination of a dislike for Father Frost, the Russian version of Santa Claus, and a longstanding dislike for New Year’s by the Muslim majority of Tajikistan.

Therefore, while private observance of New Year continues, celebrating it with fireworks, special festive dinners, exchanges of gifts, and even raising money for charity has all been banned. So while some people may make New Year resolutions around this time, the cultural importance of New Year is diminishing.
