March 20 is just another ordinary day for most people. Another day of sipping morning tea while scanning the newspaper headlines in the rush hours, taking a hurried breakfast, performing mundane domestic chores, and attending late office meetings. However, for Persians from all over the globe, the 20th of March is a day of happiness, celebration, feast and festivity. That’s because it is the first day of spring and the Persian or Iranian New Year, Norooz!
As the season of spring with its pleasant breeze brush past our face, tickles our ears, and fawn lilies, primroses, yellow daffodils, and narcissus awaken to blossom, Iranians become impatient with the joy of a lively celebration – the celebration of Nourooz – and giving it a red carpet welcome!
This is the most coveted and longest festival of the Iranians when people celebrate nature’s revival by bidding goodbye to the dry, bone-chilling and embracing spring. On this auspicious day, people love to splash water on each other and Iranian families send gifts to friends, relatives, and just marrieds.
If you have an adorable mom in Iran who showed you this world, a loving sister who got recently wed, a brother, wife, husband or an Iranian girlfriend, mark this special day by sending gifts to Iran on Nauroz. Gifts may include colorful garden-fresh blooms, signature fruit and Ajil baskets, fragrances, gourmet gifts, and so on.
