Happy new year in IRAN

Hi all hope u are fine :)

Its actually about 2 and half year since i am posting in this forum and to be honest i really like here and i feel like in an internet home here :) i found may good friends here since this 2 years :) and i thank all who helped me here :)

Its the happy new year day in IRAN :) i wish the best for u guys and girls and i hope u will always be succesful in your life :)

New year starts in the first day of spring in Iran,which everything turns to green :)
We call this day "No-Rooz" (which means NEW DAY in english).
Its completely different from xmas, instead of a tree we have something called "Haft seen" (Which means 7 things which start with the word "S") which are

1_Somagh (English: Porphyry)
2_Seeb (English:Apple)
3_Serke (English:Vinegar)
4_Sabze (A little cute green plant)
5_Senjed (English: Oleaster)
6_Samanoo (I dont think there is an exact word for it,its something made from Wheat and Flour)
7_Seer (English:Garlic)

Also every year in Iran has an animal name,for example this year is called "Sale Gav" (Which means Cow's Year).

"Norooz" has been celebrated in Iran more than 3000 ago,so its an ancient ceremony.

Here is a picture of it too (As u see there are some cute cows too which as i said its because its the "Cow Year" in iran :) )
