What is Nowruz and how is the Persian New Year celebrated?
Nowruz – No-Ruz or Persian for “new day” – is an ancient festival celebrating the first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.
More than 400 million people celebrate the Persian New Year, which has been observed for more than 3,000 years in different regions, including the Balkans, the Black Sea Basin, the Caucasus, Central Asia, the Middle East and others.
Nowruz is a celebration that marks the end of an old year and the beginning of a new one and is celebrated on the day of the astronomical vernal equinox, which usually takes place on March 21.
The celebrations last for 13 days, and it’s an opportunity to reflect on the past and set intentions for the future.
The festival is rooted in Zoroastrianism, a religion practised in ancient Persia that predates Christianity and Islam.
According to The United Nations cultural agency (UNESCO), the return of spring has great spiritual significance, representing the triumph of good over evil and joy over sorrow.
“The Spirit of Noon, known as Rapithwina, who was considered to be driven underground by the Spirit of Winter during the cold months, was welcomed back with celebrations at noon on the day of Nowruz according to Zoroastrian tradition,” UNESCO said.
The celebration is part of UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, and the United Nations General Assembly of 2010 proclaimed March 21 as International Nowruz Day.
