Photographer's Note

ز کوی یار می‌آید نسیم باد نوروزی
از این باد ار مدد خواهی چراغ دل برافروزی
فرارسیدن بهار و آغاز سال نو مبارک باد
General Assembly Recognizes 21 March as International Day of Nowruz,
Nowrūz (Persian: نوروز‎, IPA: [nouˈɾuːz], meaning "[The] New Day") is the name of the Iranian New Year[4] in Iranian calendars and the corresponding traditional celebrations.[5] Nowruz 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 vernal 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.
Happy New Year to Iranian all,
And Happy new Spring to all of my friends in the world.
