Happy Norooz!

Today is Norooz, the first day of Spring and the beginning of Persian New Year! 


'Nowruz' comes from two words, now (or a similar term, such as 'nau' or 'nav', with the sounds 'n' and 'v' or 'w'), meaning new in PersianKurdishAvestanSanskrit and several other related Indo-European languages, and roz orruz or rozh, meaning day in Middle Persian and Persian languages. The English 'new', the German 'neu', the French 'nouveau', the Romanian 'nou', are intimately related to the [[Iranian languages|Iranic] 'now'.
