The Persian or Iranian New Year begins with the springtime celebration of Nowruz. Every year on March 20th or 21st, which is the vernal equinox, Nowruz celebrations officially start. Many cultures and ethnic groups in the area have celebrated the festival, which has secular origins and is rooted in the ancient Persian religion of Zoroastrianism. The United Nations reports that Nowruz has been observed for more than 3,000 years in the Middle East, Central Asia, the Caucasus, the Balkans, and the Black Sea Basin.

Google released a special Doodle in observance of Nowruz on March 19, 2024. This colorful illustration by Pendar Yousefi shows animals congregating beneath a blossoming tree.

As per further information from Google Doodle “This Doodle, illustrated by guest artist Pendar Yousefi, celebrates Nowruz, or the new year. It’s a lively springtime festival that promotes peace, respect, kinship, and the harmony between life and nature. More than 300 million people gather around the world on this day each year to celebrate the season of rebirth.”

The Doodle further says “The annual festival has been around for over 3,000 years. The earliest origins of Nowruz trace back to ancient Iran (then Persia). It was held on the spring equinox to mark the start of the blooming season. As time went on, several countries and ethnic groups along the Silk Roads started adopting the tradition.”

The Doodle further says “During Nowruz, the most important tradition is the haft-sīn. Families gather and set out seven items that each represent renewal and rejuvenation. These items usually include wheat for rebirth and good fortune, wheat pudding for power and strength, olive for love, berries for the sunrise, vinegar for age and patienceapple for beautyand garlic for good health. Happy Nowruz!”
