Hi Friends

Iranian new year begins with Spring Nature

Haft Sîn (Persian: هفت سین) or the seven 'S's is a major tradition of Nowruz(Nowruz marks the first day of spring and the beginning of the year in Iranian calendar), the traditional Iranian new year. Today the 'haft sin' table includes seven specific items, all starting with the letter S or Sîn (س in the Persian alphabet). The items symbolically correspond to seven creations and holy immortals protecting them. Originally called Haft Chin (هفت چین), the Haft Sin has evolved over time, but has kept its symbolism. Traditionally, families attempt to set as beautiful a Haft Sîn table as they can, as it is not only of traditional and spiritual value, but also noticed by visitors during Nowruzi visitations and is a reflection of their good taste. The Haft Sin items are:

1 - 'Sabzeh'(سبزه) - wheat, barley or lentil sprouts growing in a dish - symbolizing rebirth

2 - 'Samanu' (سمنو)- a sweet pudding made from wheat germ - symbolizing affluence

3 - 'Senjed' (سنجد)- the dried fruit of the oleaster tree - symbolizing love

4 - 'Sîr' (سیر)- garlic - symbolizing medicine

5 - 'Sîb' (سیب)- apples - symbolizing beauty and health

6 - 'Somaq' (سماق)- sumac berries - symbolizing (the color of) sunrise

7 - 'Serkeh' (سرکه)- vinegar - symbolizing age and patience

While traditionally incorrect, sometimes a missing Sin is exchanged with another item starting with an S. For example:

sonbol (سنبل)- the fragrant hyacinth flower (the coming of spring)

sekkeh (سکه)- coins (prosperity and wealth)

Other items on the table may include:

traditional Iranian pastries such as baghlava (باقلوا),

"toot" (توت)- (usually white) berries, naan-nokhodchi (نان نخودچی)

dried nuts, berries and raisins that is called "Aajeel" (آجیل)

lit candles (enlightenment and happiness)

a mirror

a sweet mint syrup called sekanjabin

decorated eggs, sometimes one for each member of the family (fertility)

a bowl with goldfish (life, and the sign of Pisces which the sun is leaving)

a bowl of water with an orange in it (the earth floating in space)

rose water for its magical cleansing powers

the national colours, for a patriotic touch

A Poetry book, such as the Shahnama or the Divan of Hafez, and/or a holy book such as the Quran

'Nowruz'

Nowruz is celebrated and observed by Iranian peoples and the related cultural continent and has spread in many other parts of the world, including parts of Central Asia, South Asia, Northwestern China, the Crimea and some ethnic groups in Albania, Bosnia, Serbia and the Republic of Macedonia.

Nowruz marks the first day of spring and the beginning of the year in Iranian calendar. It is celebrated on the day of the astronomical vernal equinox, which usually occurs on March 21 or the previous/following day depending on where it is observed.

This year the new solar calender will start from 2020/3/20 and our poeple will be in vacation for 13 days

Thanks to all my friends who have visited and left me Comments, Vote, YS, Best of and any other kind words on my photos.

I love all people in world. :)

All the best from Iran,

Mahdi
