Happy Nooruz!

Nooruz is the Persian New Year. Sometimes it is spelled “Nowruz” and sometimes it is spelled “Norooz”. The word means “new day” in the Persian language. It is a time to celebrate the first day of spring and the first day of the Persian new year.

One of our readers wrote an explanation of Nooruz. You can read Saha’s article by clicking here. You can listen to the audio version of the article by clicking this link.

Go to this website for more information about Nooruz. You can also see a clock counting down the minutes to the new year!
