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.
