Norooz

Persian New Year

Norooz marks the first day of the Persian calendar and it has been celebrated for over 3,000 years. Although having Iranian and Zoroastrian origins, Norooz is a secular holiday that is enjoyed by people of several different faiths.

 

It is the day of the vernal equinox, and marks the beginning of Spring. Families gather together to observe the rituals of Norooz on this day.

Haft Seen (Seven S's) is the traditional table setting of Norooz. Typically, before the arrival of Norooz, family members gather around a table, and await the exact moment of the March equinox to celebrate the New Year. The setting includes seven items starting with the letter S or seen (س) in the Persian alphabet each symbolizing metaphors representing Spring, rebirth and good luck.

Family members decorate eggs together and place them in a bowl. Eggs symbolize fertility in the ‘Haft Seen’ table. It is said that it is from this cultural tradition that the Christian practice originates.

Sabzi polo with fish:

A traditional New Year's Day meal of rice with green herbs, served with fish. The traditional seasonings for sabzi polo are parsley, chives, coriander, dill and fenugreek greens.

The days leading to Norooz, Iranians shop for haft seen, the Norooz traditional dishes, new clothes and gifts.

During Norooz there's always sweets, fresh fruits and nuts on the table for guests, relatives, and friends who visit regularly during this time.
