Iranian Party

نوروز (Noruz) means Iranian New Year and it also represents the first of spring.

Here in Linköping, the Iranians had a big party on the last Tuesday night (17.03.09) of Iranian year.

Though we're not Iranian, Ali still invited us to this party. It was totally a different culture that I've never seen before.

e.x. we did a special "fire crossing" action:
Once you jump above the fire, you get purified. Every bad thing left all behind burned up by the fire!! So if you've farted and didn't admit that it was you, and even pointed somebody else the "farter", please go jump the fire.

And for Iranian New Year, they have lots of things symboling, just like the Chinese people: we'd like to say that everything has a good meaning of it.

These plants mean "reborn" in Iranian. I hope when spring comes, here in Sweden will be sunny days for BBQ and beach volleyball!

yet it snows today! I believe I'm in Sweden :)
