Nowruz is the day of the vernal equinox, and marks the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It marks the first day of the first month (Farvardin) of the Iranian calendars. It usually occurs on March 21 or the previous or following day, depending on where it is observed. The moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day is calculated exactly every year, and families gather together to observe the rituals.

While Nowruz has been celebrated since the reform of the Iranian Calendar in the 11th Century CE to mark the new year, the United Nations officially recognized the “International Day of Nowruz” with the adoption of UN resolution 64/253 in 2010.

Happy Nowruz to all Iranians who live in all over the world. Now Iran is fighting with Corona Virus. People must stay at home to prevent contagion.

We hope good days for our country as well as Iranians. Happy New Year…

Iranian new year starts on Friday March 20th 2020 @ 7:19:37 am
