Iranian New Year begins in March 20, the very beginning of spring here. The New Year holidays are known as 'Norooz', literally meaning 'the new day'. As Iranians, we have a tradition to give gifts to our beloved during Norooz. Here are my gifts as a 'Pigeon of Haram', an honorary servant to the pilgrims of Imam Reza (as).
