Azerbaijan Celebrates Novruz Holiday

Azerbaijan is widely celebrating Novruz from 21st to 25th of March. These days have also been declared public holidays in the country.

Novruz is one of the most beloved holidays in Azerbaijan. Meaning "new day" in Persian, Novruz marks the beginning of the year for people in Azerbaijan, Iran, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and other common cultural heritage countries. Novruz has been celebrated for at least 3,000 years and is rooted in the ancient traditions of the Zoroastrian belief system.

The first day of Novruz falls on the spring equinox, the day when the hours of daylight approximately equal those of darkness.

Using the opportunity, USACC is wishing all its members and friends happy Novruz holidays and lots of good luck in the upcoming year.
