5 Days to New Year in Iran

Just five days remaining to new year in Iran… Todays I review this year and try to find my weakpoints to improve them.

The new year holidays called Norooz (Norouz) – meaning (New Day).

The people in Iran celebrate New Year on the first day of spring. Most of the people in Iran are Muslims and celebrate their New Year with joy and fervor. Noruz or Nowruz, which is the New Year in Iran, is celebrated on the 21st of March according to the Georgian calendar. One can find in the towns and villages cannons. It is believed that until these cannons are not heard the New Year celebrations cannot begin. The preparations for the New Year in Iran begin few days ahead of the New Year.
