Gawker posted a picture of a man in Iran playing with some fire/fireworks for our celebration of Chaharshanbe Suri aka the Festival of Fire. Our New Year is tomorrow (always the first day of spring). On the eve of the last Wednesday of the Persian calendar, we celebrate by, pretty much, playing with fire!
I went to a Persian restaurant last night and before we left, we all jumped over a few fires (which is tradition). I love this little holiday, and I love my new year!
I'm probably going to make a post tonight or tomorrow about the haftseen my mom and I set up in our house for our new year.
And I hope all of you have a wonderful start to spring!
