Happy Nowruz

As the winter chill begins to fade and the vibrant colors of spring emerge, Iranians across the globe prepare for the grand festivities of Nowruz. Meaning 'new day' in Persian, this age-old celebration marks the conclusion of one year and the commencement of another, all while celebrating the rebirth of nature and the triumph of life over death.

Iran (IMNA) - From the bustling streets of Iran to the far-reaching corners of Central Asia and the Middle East, the spirit of Nowruz unites people in joy and renewal. As the vernal equinox approaches, preparations for the festivities begin. Homes are meticulously cleaned, negativity is cast out, and positivity is welcomed with arms wide open.

The symbolic Haft-seen table is set, adorned with seven items representing renewal and prosperity. The sprouting plant, sabzeh, symbolizes growth and rejuvenation, while apples, vinegar, and spices embody new beginnings and the promise of a bountiful year ahead.

The traditional New Year dinner of white fish with rice and herbs is savored amidst the laughter and chatter of families gathered together, sharing love, joy, and hope. Poetry and song fill the air as communities come together to celebrate the beauty of life and the promise of a bright future.

The festivities culminate with a day of picnicking in the countryside, where families bask in the glory of nature and enjoy the final moments of the holidays. As the sun sets on the thirteenth day after Nowruz, gratitude fills the hearts of those who have celebrated the arrival of the new year with love, peace, and harmony.

Nowruz stands not only as a celebration of the changing seasons but as a reminder of the interconnectedness of all living beings and the importance of preserving traditions and cultural heritage. Through Nowruz, Iranians and people around the world affirm their commitment to life, nature, and the unity of humanity, spreading joy and goodwill as they spring into the New Year with hope and optimism.
