Today, over 300 million people around the world-including members of the Persian, Afghan, Kurdish, Zoroastrian, Baháʼí, Central Asian, Ismaili Muslim, Azerbaijani, and many other communities around the world-are celebrating Nowruz, the start of the New Year in the Persian calendar.

Nowruz marks the beginning of spring, and it warmly welcomes the return of light and the end of the darkness of winter. A time that is filled with hope, joy, and optimism, this celebration brings friends and family together around the haft-seen table to share a meal and take part in many cultural community events.
