Nowruz, the Persian New Year
On the first Day of Spring

Nowruz or Norooz, pronounced no-rooz, is the festival that heralds the spiritual new year for Persian and some Central Asian communities, celebrating the start of spring and all that it entails: renewal, rebirth and new beginnings.

Nowruz, which falls on the first day of spring (vernal equinox), is a secular holiday, observed across the faiths and goes back some three thousand years, with practices that are partly rooted in the rituals and traditions of Zoroastrianism, the religion of ancient Persia, before the advent of Islam in 7th century A.D.

Nowruz is celebrated not just in Iran but also in other countries in Central Asia, like Iraq, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan and Turkey. The Indian Parsis also observe this holiday.

The image below shows you a Haft-Seen table, a table ladened with symbolic items to bring in the new year.
