SeezDeh BeDar, Sizdeh Bedar, Dodging the 13th day of New Year

Another important Sizdeh'Bedar tradition is for unmarried (young) girls/ladies - in the hope of finding a good & suitable husband, unmarried girls tie a knot with blades of grass and make a wish for a good husband before the next sizdeh-Bedar. The knotting of the grass represents the bondage of a man and a woman. These days, girls sing this song while knotting:

" Sizdah-Bedar sal-e deegar khooneh shoohar, bacheh baghal"
which translates to:
"Next Sizdah-Bedar, in my husband's home, with a baby in my arm"!!

When the knot is opened (it is beleived that) their luck will open and their wishes will come true. Newly weds also tie a grass knot making wishes for a baby, a house, or whatever is on their Have-To-Have list.

SeezDeh BeDar An interesting ritual performed at the end of the picnic day is to throw away the Sabzee from the Nowrooz Haft Seen table. The sabzee is supposed to have collected all the sickness, pain and ill fate hiding on the path of the family throughout the coming year! Touching someone else's sabzee on this thirteenth day or bringing it home is therefore not a good idea and may result in absorbing their pain and hardship.
