Iranians around the world are celebrating the New Year this Tuesday morning ( Protected content ) at 6:14:00 Central European Time. Astrologists among you may realize that this is the moment when the Sun is at zenith over the Equator and romantics among you may feel the romance in the air as it is also the very start of the Spring in the Northern Hemisphere ;-)
The ceremony (Nowrouz) is also celebrated in (regions of) Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, Zanzibar, Albania, and various countries of Central Asia, as well as among the Kurds.
I take this opportunity to wish a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year for Internations members coming from these countries and regions as well as the international community in The Hague.
