{تفريح و سرگرمي}, [22149] Happy Persian New Year

Nowruz (Persian: نوروز‎) is the name of the Iranian New Year in
Iranian calendars and the corresponding traditional celebrations.
Norooz is also widely referred to as the "Persian New Year".
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, Caucasus, South Asia, Northwestern
China, the Crimea and some groups in the Balkans.
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
Northward equinox, which usually occurs on March 21 or the
previous/following day depending on where it is observed. As well as
being a Zoroastrian holiday and having significance amongst the
Zoroastrian ancestors of modern Iranians, the same time is celebrated
in parts of the South Asian sub-continent as the new year.
The moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night
and day is calculated exactly every year and Iranian families gather
together to observe the rituals.
Originally being a Zoroastrian festival, and the holiest of them all,
Norooz is believed to have been invented by Zoroaster himself,
although there is no clear date of origin. Since the Achaemenid era
the official year has begun with the New Day when the Sun leaves the
zodiac of Pisces and enters the zodiacal sign of Aries, signifying the
Spring Equinox.
The term Norooz in writing, first appeared in Persian records in the
2nd century AD, but it was also an important day during the time of
the Achaemenids c. 548–330 BC), where kings from different nations
under the Persian empire used to bring gifts to the Emperor, also
called King of Kings (Shahanshah), of Persia on Norooz.
The significance of Norooz in the Achaemenid empire was such that the
great Persian king Cambyses II's appointment as the king of Babylon
was legitimized only after his participation in the New Year festival
The UN's General Assembly in 2010 recognized the International Day of
Norooz, describing it a spring festival of Persian origin which has
been celebrated for over 3,000 years. During the meeting of The
Inter-governmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible
Heritage of the United Nations, held between 28 September – 2 October
2009 in Abu Dhabi, Nowrūz was officially registered on the UNESCO List
of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
