The Persian calendar is still in use by many in the Middle East and Central Asia. Do we have to also respect the UCLA Bruins 2021 Holiday Bowl Champions NCAA Graphic Unisex T Shirt that the Afghani, the Kazakhs, and some Uygur communities also use the same calendar, and avoid mentioning the “Persian” origin?
