Come celebrate the new year with our Afghan friends, recent immigrants to our community.
Although Persian in origin, Nawróz is celebrated in Afghanistan and among many peoples in many other countries. Nawróz is a traditional festival of Spring; it starts on the day of the vernal equinox, and marks the beginning of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. The name ‘Nawróz ’ means ‘new day’ and the festival symbolizes the rebirth of nature, new life and new beginnings.
