Come celebrate Nowruz with the Iranian Resistance

 On march 20 2017, at 11 AM CET,  please join Iranians in their demand for a free Iran and join the twitter storm and tweet your support with the hashtags #FreeIran #Nowrouz.
Nowruz is an ancient tradition dating back as far as 5000 years. The first to celebrate the new year was the Kurdish Zarthosth worshipers.


Iran- Sabze symbol of growing in Nowruz
The jumping over fire comes from these early celebrations. The word Nowruz is made up of two words: nou = new and the word Ruz= day so it literarily means “new-day”. The celebrations take place over 13 days and are starting on the 29. Esfand.  In early Persian tradition, the people used 25 days before the celebration to prepare wheat, rye, oats, pies, corn, beans and sesame seed and the seeds that had the best growth was the best crop to sow this year. The celebrations nowadays are quite different.

Iranian Traditional Fire Festival Celebration
As I mentioned earlier the Nowruz celebrations predates Islam with thousands of years, and was originally a celebration of new life, of the sunlight returning and in the ancient Persia the year was divided into two parts, summer with 7 months and winter 5 months. In Iran, following the 1979 revolution the regime has been trying to eliminate the Nowruz celebrations with very little success. The regime considers Nowruz a pagan holiday and a distraction from Islamic holidays.
Every year before Nowruz people are doing Xane tekani, this means spring cleaning and this year this means a spring cleaning of the house of Iran, we must throw out the old and expired (the Regime) and start the new year with clean slates.
The Charshanbe suri is celebrated on the last Wednesday eve before the new year. It is usually celebrated with people making bonfires and jumping over them, as well as setting of fireworks and sparkles.
The decorative table is a must in the Nowruz celebrations, on the table you must have 7 items starting with the letter S.
Sabze: wheat, barley or lentil sprout grown in a bowl
Samanu: a sweet pudding made from germinated wheat
Senjed: the dried fruit of the oleaster tree
Sir: garlic
Sib: apples
Somaq: sumac berries
Serke: vinegar


Nowruz Iranian tradition Haft Sin
In the news emerging from Iranian Nowruz celebrations this year we see that the rallies turned into large protests against the clerical regime, in Tehran youth was burning portraits of Khomeini and Khamenei in protest, people all over Iran chanted Death to the mullahs and mullahs must go. The riot police have been trying to stop the celebrations but their efforts were futile. People have had enough of the mullahs and are longing for a regime change, they are dreaming and wishing for a better life.
The clergy in Tehran knows all too well that this means that their days are numbered. The mullahs are trying to prevent their downfall with more suppression, more torture, more arbitrary arrests and more public executions but the people refuse to be silenced. The people will not stop until Iran is free of her chains given her by the Islamic regime.
Iranian citizens celebrate Nowruz this year with the hope of a perspective ahead for a good year to come, the year that marks the end of the Mullahs.
