Noroz is the traditional Iranian festival of spring when the spring begins every year Iranian people say together Happy New Year such as Christmas with this different than Christmas in winter but that is in spring, this festival is main holiday in Iran, formal holiday is 4 days but unofficial holiday is 13 days, this holiday ends with Sizdebedar, in this day Iranian people go to picnic to forest, plains, next to rivers and mountains. every year in Noroz Iranian people meet each other. for example, I go to my hometown and meet my mother, my family, the cousin in Doroud. when the spring beginning all family kiss each other and give a gift. in Farsi, this gift is “Eydi”. usually, grandmother or grandfather give a gift to the child. before spring man and woman( together), they clean their home.
Noroz has been celebrated for at least 3,000 years and is deeply rooted in the rituals and traditions of the Zoroastrian religion. today the festival of Noruz is celebrated in Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Albania, Azarbayejan, Georgia, Iraq Kurdistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and etc.
I wish for everybody in all over the World new year with healthy and wealthy, and all time smile.
