Persian New Year

The Persian New Year was on 21st of March, and I though you all should know what and how it is celebrated.

It is called Nowruz and is celebrated in Iran, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, and many other places in central Asia.\

This is a celebration of the new year on the Persian Calendar and it is not just a one day celebration.  In Iran the festivities start a week before, and in Georgia they start a month before.

There are many more things but I will get into that into the next post!
