Nowroz mubarak!

It is the Spring Equinox and was celebrated in many European cultures too. Celtic Ostara for example. ( Yes the lady from American Gods ). And highly probable that Christian Easter was influenced by it too.

It symbolizes new life. Some of the pictures show former nomadic people I think.

Wonderful pictures Hossein! Lovely to see all the beautiful attire from the varying regions.

We are SO fortunate in this world to NOT be all the same, to have so many cultural differences we can celebrate and share! Thank you for these sir, and Happy Nowrooz to you too!!

(I could use a little fresh green grass in my life right now, I don't mind telling you. Snow's still a foot deep here! Thank you!) :)
