Nauryz celebration from Kazakhstan









Nauryz is the name of the Iranian New Year in the Solar Hijri calendar. It is celebrated on the day of the astronomical Northward equinox, which usually occurs on March 21 or the previous/following day. The moment the sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day is calculated exactly every year and families gather together to observe the rituals.
This holiday is widely celebrated in Kazakhstan and other Central Asian countries.

Спасибо большое, Айнагуль!
