Persian New Year and Sizdah-Bedar

Posted by Parsin on April 1, 2008

Persian New Year starts on the first day of spring, and the holidays end on the 13th of Farvardin (first month in Persian Calender), the day of “Sizdah Bedar”. Today is Farvardin 13th and in Persian tradition people spend it outside in the nature. They go to parks, riversides, and anyplace they could find out there in the nature.

In Tehran, many leave their homes from very early in the morning to find a fair place to spend the whole day. Otherwise, they have to do their picnics beside the roads! The following pictures shows some of these events.
