Families on Norouz get together and wait for the exact time it is declared, exchange gifts and eat a traditional food. It’s a time to get together and celebrate ancestry and family.
Farima will introduce the meaning of Norouz and will speak of its fun traditions, symbolic meanings, folk tales, mythology, and more.
