Today is Nowruz. Its the first day of spring and the beginning of a new year in the Persian calendar.
This festival is celebrated not just in Iran, but also by Kurds everywhere and in lands as far away as Kazakhstan and India.
I wish that in the year ahead, the animosity between the Iranian government and Israel ends. I also hope and pray that the people of Israel and Palestine will move closer to peace.
OK, NOW PUMP UP THE VOLUME ON YOUR COMPUTER!!
Yes, I mean YOU.
Its time for another Nowruz tradition, which is to dance and be happy. This is a fantastic Nowruz song by the UK-based Iranian band AJAM. LOVE IT!
