<b>Norooz 1390 - Eid-e Shoma Mubarak</b> In harmony with the rebirth of nature, the Iranian New Year Celebration, or NOROOZ, always begins on the first day of spring. Norooz ceremonies are symbolic representations of two ancient concepts - the End and the Rebirth; or Good and Evil. The origins of Norooz 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 Norooz, at the beginning of spring signified rebirth, and was a time of great joy and celebration. =========================================================================== I CONGRATULATE TO ALL IRANIAN PEOPLE ANYWHERE AROUND THE GLOBE (MOTHER EARTH). ((Fara Residane Norooz-e Baztani Ra Be Shoma Va Khanevadeh Gerami Tabrik Gofteh Va Sali Pur As Salamati Va Shadkami Barayetan Arezoomandam.)) I HOPE IN THIS NEW YEAR [ 1390 ], YOU WILL HAVE A BEAUTIFUL PEACEFUL LIFE WITH GOOD HEALTH AND LOTS OF SUCCESS.
