HAPPY NEW YEAR
Persian and Otherwise
FYI - VERY PRE-ISLAMIC
Mullahs have tried to suppress it being celebrated. Should tell you something.
This basically Zoroastrian religious festival of “renewal” arriving in Spring, has three main tenets in its religion:
Think good thoughts (pendaar-e neek), speak good words (goftaar-e neek) and do good deeds (kerdaar-e neek).
