Norouz Message

 

 

The Persian New Year also known as Norouz starts on the first day of spring, which usually coincides with March 21st.  The word "Norouz" is a compound word that blends together the Persian words "No" which means "new", and "Rouz" which means "day".

Norouz celebrates renewal and rebirth of the nature, symbolized by arrival of spring. It is partly rooted in the Zoroastrain tradition, but is an ancient holiday that has been celebrated for thousands of years and is also an important Iranian cultural holiday.

 

 

On the occasion of the 1401 Norouz and the rise of a new century in the Iranian solar calendar, I hope your innate talents and gifted opportunities blossom and fruit along with the nature.

Happy 1401 New Year!!!
