Nowruz means "new day☀", it is the Iranian New Year (The Persian New Year), which begins on the spring equinox, the first month of the Iranian solar calendar (generally falls on March)📅. Nowruz is a secular festival with roots that go back over 3,000 years. It was shaped by people of the Zoroastrian faith, believed to be the world's oldest religion🙏.
Before the festival, people will set a table called the haft-seen, translating to “seven S's.” At the center of the table are seven items that begin with the letter S, each holding a particular significance👇:
Seeb (apple) is the symbol of beauty, seer (garlic) is the symbol of health and medicine💊, somagh (sumac) represents sunrise🌅, sabzeh (green grass) represents healing and rebirth of the Earth🌏, serkeh (vinegar) symbolizes patience, senjed (olives) signals love❤ and samanu (pastry paste) is about the power and strength of forgiveness💪. At the center of the table, a mirror is placed for reflection, flowers to symbolize the Earth's healing, eggs to symbolize life and a live fish to represent one's connection to the animal world. Some families place a religious book at the table📚, such as the Quran, Bible or Avista; others place books by favorite Iranian poets such as Hafez or Rumi.
