Nowruz is a great time of the year. Its the first day of Spring and the start of a new Iranian year. It brings back so many happy childhood memories.
There are so many things I want to wish for the coming year.
At this moment it may sound far fetched, but I am not giving up hope. As we say in Persian:
در نا امیدی بسی امید است پایان شب سیه سپید است
Translation: There is hope in hopelessness, dawn is at the end of the dark night
Meanwhile here is a great musical video about the special table which Iranians prepare for the new year and what it signifies.
Happy new year everyone. Next Nowruz in Tehran: amen.
