‘Nowruz’ Collection

21th day of March… 

Nowruz marks the first day of spring and the beginning of the year in Iranian calendar. It is celebrated on the day of the astronomical vernal equinox, which usually occurs on March 21 or the previous/following day depending on where it is observed. As well as being a Zoroastrian holiday and having significance amongst the Zoroastrian ancestors of modern Iranians, the same time is celebrated in parts of the South Asian sub-continent as the new year. The moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day is calculated exactly every year and Iranian families gather together to observe the rituals.

Although the Kurds celebrate Nowruz, it was not however until 2005 that Kurdish population of Turkey could celebrate their new year openly. “Thousands of people have been detained in Turkey, as the authorities take action against suspected supporters of the Kurdish rebel movement, the PKK. The holiday is now official in Turkey after international pressure on the Turkish government to lift culture bans.

    I have celebrated Nowruz with Americans of Iranian descent and Americans of Kurdish descent. The colored eggs of Easter comes from Nowruz. On Nowruz you lay out a symbolic table, with six specialized items to show the Earth, sky, water, and Spring. Just like Pesach, you lay out a table with seven symbolic foods. Both the Nowruz and Pesach tables have eggs and Spring greens. It comes from the ancient days, when commodities and ideas traveled along roads.
