ROZANNA BARANETS, SPMS LIBRARIAN
March 20 was the start of the Iranian New Year season! Nowruz has been celebrated in Iran and the Persian diaspora for more than 3,000 years. Our “haft-seen” table in the library teaches kids what it’s all about.
Nowruz is the Iranian (or Persian) New Year celebration that happens in the spring. According to the Iranian calendar, it is the year 1401. The display we have in the library is a representation of the decorative table every Iranian family puts out at the new year. Each item has symbolic significance, as explained in the cards. Tables very from family to family, but there are always the same basic 7 items which, in the Persian language, all start with the letter “s.” The haft-seen table literally means “seven s’s.”
Students also did a craft project where they made a goldfish out of yarn and cardboard. Goldfish at the haft-seen table are symbols of life.
