March 20th brings Spring and in many cultures that special time is celebrated, after all..its the day when hopefully the bleakness and cold of winter goes, bringing green, warmth and the sun back for everyone to enjoy (Unless you live someplace like Malaysia where its warm and sunny 365days a year!)
In countries which have a large Persian population or a Persian cultural influence like Iran, Afghanistan, Central Asian countries, Iraq and Turkey (Kurdish communities), there is a special holiday called No Ruz which literally means New Day and is the beginning of a new year! I wont get too much into it, if your curious about the holiday and its traditions, you can easily find out by looking online.
Anyway, each year people become very busy with preparing for the holiday and in Tehran a special exhibit is done showcasing the different tribes and ethnic groups in Iran, their dress, their food and their dances and how they celebrate NoRuz.
I don’t know all the different groups showcased…but if I recognize any by there dress, I’ll mention it!
Qashqai tribal women
I think these women are Gilaki or from around the Caspian sea.
I don’t know…maybe from Central Iran or Khorasan…?
