HAPPY NOROOZ! In harmony with the rebirth of nature, the Iranian New Year

Celebration, or NOROOZ, always begins on the first day of spring. NOROOZ

ceremonies are symbolic representations of two ancient concepts - the End

and the Rebirth; or Good and Evil. A few weeks before the New Year, Iranians

clean and rearrange their homes. They make new clothes, bake pastries and

germinate seeds as sign of renewal. The origins of NOROOZ go back several

thousand years predating the Achaemenian Dynasty. The ancient Iranians had a

festival called "Farvardgan" which lasted ten days, and took place at the

end of the solar year. It appears that this was a festival of sorrow and

mourning, signifying the end of life while the festival of NoRuz, at the

beginning of spring signified rebirth, and was a time of great joy and

celebration. The first day of the year brings new beginnings and this day of

great celebration was named NOROOZ which means NEW DAY, and was recognised

as the first day of the year. Join us on Friday March 22, 2002 for a potluck

dinner to celebrate Persian New Years. Come and listen to some great persian

music and look at art from Iran while you learn and discuss what Persian New

Years is all about. We will also be watching an excellent Independent

Iranian Movie.
