Nowruz is an old and great festivity held in the 21st March, to celebrate the beginning of new year, when the sun reaches to its spring equinox, and transfers from Pisces to Aries.
It is of great importance to the Iranians and the Parsians of India, and it extends to 13 days during which exchange of visits continues.
In these days, people wear new cloths and felicitate the others for Nowruz and the arrival of new year. They spread a table cloth on which there are seven things whose name begins with S in Persian language. The older members of families give new year gratuity to the younger relatives.
The Moslem kings of Iran respected Nowruz as much as the ancient kings of Iran did. The Salam ceremonies were held with much glory and splendor, as if nature shared the happiness of nation because of equinox of the season, as the day begins with much freshness and delicacy. Poets compose great poems, praising the glory of nature. On the 13th day of spring, people spend the day outdoors and the Nowruz festivities end up.
