Google celebrates spring festival of Nowruz with colourful doodle

NEW DELHI: Nowruz, also known as the Persian New Year, is an important holiday celebrated on the vernal equinox, typically around March 20th or 21st. It is a time of renewal and new beginnings, and is celebrated by people of Iranian and Central Asian descent.
Google is celebrating Nowruz today with a doodle artwork that represents the theme with spring flowers – tulips, hyacinths, daffodils and bee orchids.
Nowruz is a pre-Islamic holiday that has been celebrated for over 3,000 years, and is deeply rooted in the traditions and culture of the region. The holiday marks the first day of spring and the beginning of the Persian calendar year. It is a time for cleaning and decluttering the home, visiting friends and family, and sharing traditional foods.
In many cultures, Nowruz also marks the beginning of a new year — a time to reflect on the past, set intentions for the future, and strengthen relationships with loved ones. Some common traditions include: Decorating eggs to honor new life, tidying up your home to prepare for a fresh start, and feasting on spring vegetables and herbs.
One of the most important rituals of Nowruz is the setting of a “Haft-Seen” table, which is decorated with seven items that symbolize different aspects of life, such as health, wealth, and fertility. These items typically include sprouts, coins, garlic, apples, vinegar, and a mirror.
Nowruz is celebrated for 13 days, during which people engage in various festivities and traditions, such as jumping over bonfires and participating in street performances. It is a time for expressing gratitude and hope for the future.
Happy Nowruz to all who celebrate! May your new year be filled with love, peace, and renewed hope.
