Happy Persian New Year, Happy Nowruz!

Happy Persian New Year (Nowruz)!

As a friend wrote to me, "This morning at 4:45 am [California time] the Sun crossed the equator signaling the first moments of the Spring, and the start of the Persian New Year :-)   The site http://www.timeanddate.com/news/holidays/vernal-equinox-2008.html has a good explanation of what constitutes March Equinox."

Foreign ministers of Persian speaking countries celebrated Nowruz in Afghanistan.

Happy Persian New Year

Happy Persian New Year, 1387 A.H., 2008 A.D.

Patricia Khashayar has written a pretty good report on Nowruz for Press TV. Press TV also carries a report on an underwater Haft Seen in the Persian Gulf.

Happy Persian New Year!
Happy Norouz!
