    Muslims and Jews use lunar calendars, that cause the New Year to move around the solar calendar.

    Muslims, Jews, and Easter Orthodox Christians each have their own calendars for calculating religious dates. They all use the Gregorian calendar for secular events, the same as everyone else.

    The Gregorian calendar, which you probably call the "regular" calendar, is named after Pope Gregory XIII.

    Muslims celebrate New Year's Day, as do Jews. Muslims also celebrate the Islamic New Year on the start of the year according to the Islamic calendar, and Jews celebrate Rosh Hashana, which is the start of the new year on the Jewish calendar.
