Happy Persian New Year!

Above is a photo of my mum's (Sandra's) friends  in traditional, regional Iranian dresses.

Iranians celebrate the coming of spring & a New Year in March. Feasts are had, new clothes are bought and relatives are visited. Traditionally, seven items are placed on a table (Haft Sin)  - each item a symbol of the New Year.  To find out more about Nowruz (or Norooz) watch this VIDEO 

Why not celebrate too, with an Iranian themed evening. Try Persian style dance and a tasty Iranian meal.  Start by checking out this Iranian singer: Googoosh great for dancing to too :D
