Reza Pahlavi’s family celebrated Nowruz with Farah Pahlavi

The story of Nowruz goes back over 3,000 years, with a strong connection to the Zoroastrians (say “ZOH-roh-as-tree-IN”). They viewed this special time of year as a victory over darkness. Zoroastrianism is believed to be one of the oldest known living religions. Some prepare weeks in advance for Nowruz. Houses are cleaned from top to bottom. Fresh flowers like daffodils, hyacinth and tulips are displayed. And vessels are filled with water to get rid of any bad luck.
