Salaam azeezan, we’re almost there! Only a few hours left to the beginning of the new year “Norooz”. So regardless of the local time for each one of us around the world. we would all be sitting in front of our “haft seen table “. Since we’re celebrating the Vernal equinox, the beginning of the year, the beginning of spring & new beginnings for each one of us🌞

Salaam azeezan🙋‍♀️ only 5 more days to the new year🌞
We are preparing our
“haft seen table”! Of course Sabzeh (our sprouts ) would be the star of this table setting:). So the term “sabzeh sabz meekoneem” literally means sprouting our various grains🌞.
If yours is not done yet, no worries!
A stop at any local grocery store will do😀 They all sell wheat sprouts that would look great on your haft seen table, just a little red bow would make it presentable.
Remember it’s just the energy of a new life in your home, that’s all it’s about.
I hope you enjoy the process of preparing your haft seen table .
Make it simple & stress free.

Salaam azeezan,
Today is: Chahar shanbe souri❤️
The last Wednesday eve of the year.
It’s the first festivity prior to the new year. A tradition based on Zoroastrian
belief that fire is the source of energy & vibrance, fire clears evil & gives us a clean slate for the new year.
This evening as we jump over fire we say the following:
زردی من از تو ، سرخی تو از من
I will give you my yellow skin & take your red color, energy & vibrance.
Remember, the fire can be a small bonfire on the street or even a candle on your kitchen floor! Just jumping over it gives you energy.
Chahar shanbe souri mobarak🎉

Could mean Merry, congrats even wow.
That’s why we hear مبارکall the time for relatively trivial matters to significant events in our lives.
Your kids have a new haircut, mobarak!
Your partner wears his new t-shirt٫mobarak!
Someone’s birthday, “tavalodet mobarak”! A new year, “Sal-e no mobarak”…..
So please don’t be shy & add “mobarak to your daily vocabulary 🌞

Salaam azeezan,
Hal-e shoma chetoreh?
Sal-e no mobarak:).
Yes, we need to begin the new year with this simple yet versatile word, “mobarak”could mean: congrats or happy.

Mobarak is your word of choice for any wonderful event, small or very significant, like a birthday “Tavalodet mobarak “,
A new home, “khuneh-ye Jadeed mobarak”, a new t-shirt,……etc.
Pretty soon we will be saying: “Norooz mobarak”🎉

Salaam azeezan!
“Ruz-e shokr gozari
mobarak “, meaning:
happy Thanksgiving.
It might seem difficult to imagine a festive Thanksgiving while we are mourning the lives of soooo many of our countrymen.
However, giving thanks is a huge part of the Persian culture, we are constantly reminding ourselves of the divine presence & show appreciation for what we have even in mourning 🥲.
“Khoda posht o panaheshoon basheh”, May the divine protect them❤️

“Vatan” وطن
Meaning,: country, by adding the suffix-am it becomes: “my country “.
The word “Vatan” is one of many words used in Farsi to express the notion of country however; “vatan “
Is the only one
covering not only the piece of land we call IRAN but also the people, the culture & so much more.
that’s why it’s worth giving our lives for our “VATAN “🥲
