Nowruz means New (No) Day (Rouz)
“In the Persian language, Nowruz means No (new) and rouz (day). It means new day, symbolising new life, new beginnings. Every year, Nowruz coincides with the start of spring and traditionally celebrates the rebirth of nature. It also coincides with the spring equinox… The celebration is now embedded in the Iranian culture, but the roots can be traced back 3,000 years, to traditions from the Zoroastrian religion. Zoroastrianism, an ancient Iranian religion that respected fire, was once the state religion of Ancient Iran. Zoroaster is the founder of Zoroastrianism. He was a prophet known for the book Avesta. The slogan of their religion was “Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deed.” – Seymat, Thomas. “Everything you need to know about Nowruz, the New Year for many.”
