Happy Norouz! Sorry a little late, but this past Saturday was the first day of Spring, and the Persian New Year. In case you don't know me, I am Persian and was born in Shiraz, Iran. My sister and I try to do what we can to celebrate Iranian traditions, although most of our close family is scattered in Iran, Europe and the States.

Part of the tradition to celebrate the New Year is to set a table called Haft Sīn. The table includes seven specific items starting with the letter "S" or Sin in the Persian alphabet. These items are symbolic representations with traditional meanings. Each families table represents not only tradition but a reflection of their good taste. Here is our table above.Happy Norouz :)
