Spring rites are celebrated and acknowledged around the world. In Iran, the first day of Spring is also the first day of the New Year, or Noroos. Noroos is an ancient Zoroastrian holiday that Persians have celebrated with rituals that focus on the beginning and end of life, on rebirth, and on good and evil in the world. It is a time of reflection and renewal.
