Persian New Year

When I first learned about this holiday a few years ago, I was entranced by some of its customs. I even grew a pot of grass one year to mark the Spring Equinox as the celebrants of this holiday do.

I think it is vitally important to know the significant celebrations of other cultures, if we are to increase global understanding among people. So I was thrilled to see the video of President Barack Obama acknowledging this holiday and sending greetings to the people across the world who observe it.

FYI....George Bush did the same thing. Funny that no one noticed.
