Navruz - the first day of the Iranian calendar, the beginning of spring, corresponding to the day of Uraz of the month of Farvardin (pers. فروردین) (approximately March 14); equinox - equality of day and night; the beginning of a season of growth and prosperity. The word "Navruz" itself is translated from Persian as "new day".
In Iran, the celebration usually lasts 13 days, of which the first 5 days are devoted to the meeting of Novruz and visiting relatives and friends. The ninth day is known as Shahryaran-Navruz (Shah's Navruz), and the thirteenth day as Sizdah-be-dar (Persian سیزده به در) (“The thirteenth away from home”).
In Azerbaijan, there is such a tradition: you need to light a fire, which is called “tongal”, and jump over it seven times.
In 2010 Novruz was celebrated in the Tajik city of Dangara, in 2011 in the Iranian capital Tehran, in 2013 in Turkmen Ashgabat.
Nowruz has an ancient history. In the poem "Shahnameh" (Pers. شاهنامه), the beginning of its celebration is associated with the beginning of the reign of Shah Jamshid (Pers. جمشید) (hence the often used name of the holiday among the Zoroastrians - "Jamshidi Navruz" and the tradition of coronation of Shahs on this holiday).
The word "Navruz" first appeared in Persian sources in the second century AD, but the event itself was already celebrated during the Achaemenid dynasty around 550-330 BC. BC e. These days, the rulers of the provinces of the Persian Empire brought gifts to the Shahinshah.
