Three in One

The Gregorian year 2008 will see three Hijri years. The last days of Zul Hijja 1428 fell in the first days of January 2008, followed by the Hijri year of 1429. The last days of December 2008 will see the start of the Hijri year 1430. This means that year 2008 will see the end of 1428, the complete year of 1429 and the beginning of 1430. Having three Hijri years in a Gregorian year happens once every 33 years, which means 2041 will next have three lunar years.
