Wikipedia

  1. Nowruz

    The Iranian New Year, also known as the Persian New Year, is the festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the Iranian Solar Hijri calendar. In Persian it is known as Nowruz (Persian: نوروز, [noːˈɾuːz]; lit. 'new day'), and begins on the spring equinox; the day is celebrated worldwide by various ethnolinguistic groups and falls on or around the date of 21 March on the Gregorian calendar. The day of Nowruz has its origins in the Iranian religion of Zoroastrianism and is thus rooted in the traditions of the Iranian peoples; however, it has been celebrated by diverse communities for over 3,000 years in Western Asia, Central Asia, the Caucasus, the Black Sea Basin, the Balkans, and South Asia. Presently, while it is largely a secular holiday for most celebrants and enjoyed by people of several different faiths and backgrounds, Nowruz remains a holy day for Zoroastrians, Baháʼís, and some Muslim communities.As the spring equinox, Nowruz marks the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, i.e. the moment at which the Sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day is calculated exactly every year. Traditional customs of Nowruz include fire and water, ritual dances, gift exchanges, reciting poetry, symbolic objects and more; these customs differ between the diverse peoples and countries that celebrate the festival.

    Qassem Soleimani said. That was under Irans Shiite shah, toppled in the 1979 revolution. But even after, Iran fought off other outbreaks, and its hospitals, doctors and nurses are known as some of the best in the wider Middle East, with a network of clinics from villages to big cities. However, the system appears to be stretching at the seams, with online videos purporting to show field hospitals going up. Meanwhile, Irans Shiite 80 million people, whose sense of high risk has been dulled by years of international isolation, crowd into grocery stores and butcher shops, suspicious of anything in the state media. Nowruz, the Persian New Year, looms on Friday, a holiday when millions travel. The government repeatedly has stopped short of ordering any major travel restrictions. It hasnt explained why, but there could be worry about further angering its people or slowing down its anemic, sanctions-hurt economy. Online videos show Iranians ignoring government demands to stay home and moving instead toward the coast of the Caspian Sea and the Persian Gulf. Residents of hard-hit Rasht, on Irans Shiite coast, have threatened to attack out-of-towners. We expect that, God willing, we can contain the rising trend of the disease, not the disease itself, by March 26, but I say this very frankly : if the great people dont cooperate, the disease will continue to be there until late May or even in June, and turn into a huge crisis.
