In my last post I mentioned that my parents were visiting. What I didn't mention was that this week is also the Persian new year! The Persian new year (called "Norouz") takes place on the turn of the Spring Equinox and usually falls on March 20th or 21st. It's a wonderful 13 day celebration filled with family, food, dancing, and lots of eating!
Every year we go to a Norouz party in the area and celebrate. This year our celebration was taken to a new level since my parents were here. Party people in the house--I'm telling you! ;)
So, to everyone celebrating Norouz, happy new year!
And to everyone else, happy Spring!
