Happy New Year, Iran!

Back in December, I ask my friend Sara if I should wish her Happy New Year on January 1 or not. It turns out that Iran uses a different calendar than the west, and their new year falls on the vernal equinox, which is Farvardin 1 by the Persian calendar*.

So, No-Rooz Pirooz* to my Iranian friends!

(how we celebrate New Year's in the US)

*I think. I'm hoping it's the thought that counts in this situation.


  1. wo0o00o000o0000ow, thank you darling so much for this special congratulation.this post is the best gift for me in this new year.***

  2. I think the only holidays the whole Earth might reasonably celebrate are the Equinoxes and the Solstices. But then I'm a big-picture kind of guy.
