Spring is with us!

How do you celebrate the coming of the spring in your country?

Dicle, from Turkey, explains us how they celebrate it in their country:

On 21 st of March, we celebrate the coming of the spring and the celebration is called Nevruz’Nevruz, a combination of Persian words Nev(new) and Ruz(day) means the new day. Nevruz, besides being the symbol of nature’s release from winter and arrival of days of affluence and abundance, is also accepted as a day which reflects the vitalities, new beginnings and thresholds for us. 

During Nevruz, people come together and light a big fire. They dance and sing around the fire until it gets smaller. Then, some people jump on it which is a bit crazy. That’s why not all people do that. 

After that ceremony, everybody writes their wishes, resolutions to a piece of paper or they just take a piece of scarf. All people hang their wishes to a big tree believeing they will come true after that day. 

Well, this is how we celebrate the coming of the spring. What’s your way of celebrating it??
