One of them was school being closed for 2 weeks. Oh God, that was amazing. Imagine having all the Jewish holidays off school + Nowruz + all Muslim holidays. French union workers looked like a bunch of overworked workaholics next to us.
The other was sharing jokes with friends and cousins.
I would like to continue with this tradition by sharing one of my favorite comedy sketches of all time with you.
Happy Nowruz everyone.
Oh and before I forget, much like the Jews in exile always say “next year in Jerusalem” during their Passover meal, we say “next year in Iran”. Can I have a hearty Amen for that?
