In the Norooz app we introduce not only Norooz and the spring equinox, but many other events and traditions
related to the Persian New Year. For example:
- Children will learn about Chaharshanbeh Soori, also known as the festival of fire, which is held several nights prior to the equinox
- They will gain an understanding of a Haft Sin traditional table setting.
- They will find out what happens on the 13th day of Norooz which is called "Sizdah bedar"
To strengthen learning, we’ve included several interactive features, including a make-it-yourself Haft Sin table and a hands-on explanation of the spring equinox that helps children understand the earth’s revolving relationship with the sun.
