Welcoming Spring in Iran

Since the Persian New Year begins on the very first day of spring, our traditions for welcoming the new year are very spring-like. The rebirth of nature inspires us to renew and cleanse our surroundings. We scrupulously clean our homes, offices, and streets, we shop for new clothes, new household appliances if necessary, and spring flowers and plants are not to be left out. Bottom line, everything has to be as fresh and new as spring. In fact, we call our Persian New Year, Norooz which means a new day.
