نوروزتان پیروز و هر روزتان نوروز باد
NowRuz - 1st day of Spring
Persian - Iranian New year 2577 (1397, 2018)
In harmony with the rebirth of nature, the Iranian New Year
Celebration, or NOWRUZ (NoRuz, NoRooz), always begins on the first day of spring.
Nowruz ceremonies are symbolic representations of two ancient concepts
- the End and the Rebirth; or Good and Evil.
A few weeks before the New Year, Iranians clean and rearrange their
homes. They make new clothes, bake pastries and germinate seeds as
sign of renewal. The ceremonial cloth is set up in each household.
Troubadours, referred to as Haji Firuz,
disguise themselves with makeup
and wear brightly colored outfits of satin. These Haji Firuz, singing
and dancing, parade as a carnival through the streets with tambourines,
kettle drums, and trumpets to spread good cheer and the news of the
coming new year.
نوروزتان پیروز و خجسته باد
The origins of NoRuz are unknown, but they go back several thousand years
predating the Achaemenian Dynasty. The ancient Iranians had a festival called
"Farvardgan" which lasted ten days, and took place at the end of the solar
year. It appears that this was a festival of sorrow and mourning, signifying the end
of life while the festival of NoRuz, at the beginning of spring signified
rebirth, and was a time of great joy and celebration.
