Iranian New Year and Spring Equinox
Norûz (Norooz) is the new year holiday in Iran, Azerbaijan, Central Asia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, parts of India and among the Kurds. The word itself literally means "new day" in Persian, and the festival marks the beginning of the solar year and new year on the Iranian calendar, as well as among several other nationalities.

Norûz (Norooz) traditionally celebrates the awakening of nature, and even the triumph of good over the oppressive darkness of winter. It is a time to celebrate life at the time when life begins or is renewed for much of that which is on the earth. The new year is marked at the instant the sun leaves the astrological sign of Pisces and enters that of Aries.

It has been celebrated by all the major cultures of ancient Mesopotamia. Sumerians, 3000 B.C., Babylonians 2000 B.C., the ancient kingdom of Elamite in Southern Persia 2000 B.C., Akaddians all have been celebrating it in one form or another. What we have today as Norûz (Norooz) with itsí uniquely Iranian characteristics has been celebrated for at least 3000 years.
