Iran issues stamp celebrating Int’l Day of Nowruz
Posted by alanmirs on March 28, 2010
Haft-Sin denoting ‘seven items beginning with the letter sin (S)’, is one of the components of the rituals of the New Year’s Day festival observed by Iranians.
The stamp was made public in the presence of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during the first International Nowruz Celebrations in Tehran on Saturday.
Nowruz, meaning “a new day,” is an ancient Iranian tradition that has been celebrated around the globe for nearly three millenniums.
It honors the first day of spring as a new year and a brand new beginning on a merry, peaceful note. It is celebrated on the day of the vernal equinox, which normally lands on March 21
