Happy Nowruz or "Eid-eh Shoma Mobarak" to all of my friends and colleagues. May God bless you with good health, peace and joy in this new year, which starts at ~8:30 am PST on Sun., March 20, 2022.

Nowruz, Novruz, Persian New Year'S Table

In Iran, this cultural festival lasts for thirteen days. In other countries it goes for 50 days, and in some it lasts for four weeks, with each Tuesday celebrating a different element: fire, earth, water and air.

Nowruz is literally translated as “new day” and acknowledges the spring equinox and the beginning of the Persian, Iranian and Muslim New Year. To properly prepare for Nowruz, people do a major cleaning, known as "shaking down the house".

A Haftsin table is set with seven auspicious symbolic foods and elements that each start with the letter "s": sonbol (hyacinth), sabzeh (grass) sabzeh (sprouted lentil or wheat), which symbolizes rebirth; seer (garlic) for good health; serekh (vinegar) for patience; seeb (apple) for beauty; and samanu, a sweet paste made from germinated wheat. The display also traditionally features colored hard-boiled eggs and a goldfish (representing life), a mirror, candles and a holy book.

 

 

 

People from all walks of life join together for the holiday of Nowruz. Nowruz traces its roots back to Zoroastrian beliefs. While many Muslims celebrate Nowruz, it is considered a cultural rather than religious holiday. 

 

One exciting Nowruz tradition is "jumping the fire." In this event, celebrants jump over a small fire that symbolizes the burning up of the past year's wrongs and boldly jumping fresh and clean into a new year.

Persian Norooz, Iranian Nowruz

Nowruz is an important cultural holiday that has been officially recognized and celebrated in the United States White House, Senate and House of Representatives since 2010.
