Happy Nowruz 2582
Nowruz, also known as Persian New Year or the Iranian New Year, is a festival that marks the beginning of the new year in the Persian calendar. The celebration of Nowruz has its roots in ancient Persian traditions and is celebrated by millions of people in Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, and other countries.
Nowruz falls on the first day of spring, usually on March 20th or 21st, and it marks the end of winter and the beginning of a new year. The celebration lasts for 13 days and is a time for family gatherings, feasting, and festivities.
During the celebration of Nowruz, people clean their homes, buy new clothes, and prepare a special table called Haft-Seen, which is adorned with seven items that start with the Persian letter "sin" (س). These items represent different aspects of life, such as health, wealth, and happiness.
On the first day of Nowruz, people typically visit their relatives and friends and exchange gifts. They also participate in outdoor activities, such as picnics and hiking, to enjoy the arrival of spring.
Nowruz is a significant cultural event for Persian-speaking communities around the world, and it has been recognized by the United Nations as an international holiday since 2010.
