Hey Guys! This post is quite old!

We will enter: 7032 based on Mitrai Arian calendar. 3748 based on Zoroastrian calendar. 2569 based on unification of Persian Empire by Cyrus the great. 1389 based on Islamic calendar. Norooz (meaning ‘New Day’) is the traditional ancient Iranian festival and also the start day of Iranian “New Year”. Norooz 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. The exact moment that Sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day is calculated exactly every year and Iranian families gather together to observe the rituals. This year Vernal Equinox of Tehran is on Saturday, March 20, 2010, 09:02:13 PM. During Norooz at the time of Achaemenids dynasty (648-330 BC) kings from different nations under the Persian empire used to bring gifts to the emperor in Persepolis 50 km North of Shiraz in Fars province of Iran. 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 as a globally recognized cultural and historical significance. Wish everyone Happy Norooz.
