The Persian compound word nowruz combines the terms “now,” which means “new,” and “ruz,” which means “day.” Nowruz, thus, translates to “new day.” Nowruz, or the Persian New Year, is a 3,000-year-old spring celebration that is observed by millions of people worldwide. This ancient festival has its roots in Zoroastrianism. The Iranian Solar Hijri calendar begins on Nowruz, which typically falls between March 19 and March 21.

Every year, on or around March 20th or 21st, is the spring equinox, which is when Nowruz usually falls. Astronomical computations determine the precise date. The celebration, which spans roughly two weeks, is marked by a wide range of traditions, rites, and events that stand for rebirth, renewal, and the victory of light over darkness.

History of Nowruz

Nowruz ceremonies may have taken place in ancient Persepolis under the Achaemenid Empire (550–330 B.C.), according to historical reports. Legends surrounding its origins tell of a Persian king who, on the first day of spring, soars across the heavens in a jeweled chariot.19 hours prior.

Nowruz celebrations are observed in a number of nations with a strong Persian cultural impact, including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey, and Kazakhstan. Zoroastrianism is an ancient monotheistic religion.

“Renewal of nature and relationships is a major theme of the holiday,” Shadi Mokharti, an American University professor in Washington, D.C., tells the School of International Service. For the majority of Iranians, it is typically the highlight of the year.
