Norooz, which means “New Day” in Persian, has been celebrated for more than 3,000 years, and traditionally begins the very moment that the sun crosses the equator on the vernal equinox. The holiday has roots in the ancient Zoroastrian religion and marks the first day of the official Iranian calendar.
Iranians, along with many other ethnicities, celebrate the turn of year on the first day of spring and follow it with weeks-long holiday.
PTC congrats this festive occasion and will be back soon.
Happy New Persian Year and Norooz Mobarak!
