Parsi New Year

Parsi New Year

Parsi New Year, also known as Navroz or Nowruz, is a festival celebrated by the Parsi community in India and around the world. The festival marks the beginning of the Persian calendar and is observed on the first day of the month of Farvardin.

The Parsi community is a religious and ethnic minority in India, with roots in ancient Persia (modern-day Iran). The festival of Navroz has been celebrated by the Parsi community for over 3,000 years and is an important part of their cultural heritage.

On Parsi New Year, people dress up in new clothes, decorate their homes with flowers and rangoli designs, and prepare traditional dishes such as dhansak, pulao, and sweets. Families and friends gather together to share a festive meal and exchange greetings and gifts.

One of the key rituals of the festival is the Jashan ceremony, which is held in Parsi fire temples. The ceremony involves offering prayers and performing rituals to thank God for the blessings of the past year and seek His blessings for the new year.

Parsi New Year is a time of renewal and new beginnings, and it is believed that the festival brings good luck and prosperity for the coming year. It is also a time for reflection and introspection, as people take stock of their lives and resolve to make positive changes in the year ahead.
