You read the subject correctly.
It IS the New Year…Persian New Year.
My wife Del is Iranian so this has become a new tradition for me since we met.
The proper word is Nowruz and it always falls on the first day of Spring. This usually occurs on March 21st each year.
One of the cool things is the ‘Haft Sin’
This represents various items that symbolize Spring.
Obviously, great food and dessert is always a part as well!
So from our S2M family to yours,
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
