Norooz, also known as Persian New Year, is an ancient celebration that marks the beginning of spring and a new year on the Iranian calendar. It is a time of joy, renewal, and family gatherings, and it's celebrated by Iranians and many other cultures worldwide. At Tooka Florist, we honor this ancient tradition by offering a wide range of Norooz-themed flower arrangements and decorations that can help you celebrate this special occasion.
History of Norooz
Norooz has been celebrated for over 3,000 years and is deeply rooted in Persian culture and Zoroastrianism. It falls on the spring equinox, which usually occurs on March 20 or 21, and it lasts for 13 days. The festivities include cleaning the house, buying new clothes, preparing a special table setting called haft-sin, and visiting family and friends.
Haft-Sin Table Setting
The haft-sin is an essential part of the Norooz celebration and is a beautiful and symbolic table setting that includes seven items starting with the Persian letter "sin." These items represent seven aspects of life, including health, prosperity, happiness, and beauty. The haft-sin items include:
- Sabzeh (sprouted wheat or lentil representing rebirth)
- Samanu (sweet pudding representing wealth)
- Senjed (sweet, dry fruit representing love)
- Sir (garlic representing health)
- Sib (apple representing beauty and fertility)
- Somagh (sumac berries representing sunrise and the victory of light over darkness)
- Serkeh (vinegar representing age and patience)
